Lockdown 4

The sun still shines lockdown carries on and I’m grateful for a little site that I can go to where nobody seems to go to keep my well being good, with insects and photography.
There was good numbers of butterflies about especially Small Heath and Brimstone neither settling,  Dingy Skipper once again proving difficult to find, finally managing to get a few shots with one that was a bit more settled, also managed to finally pin down Orange tip, Green veined White, Small White with an added bonus of a Mother Shipton Moth all on the same flowers,  two Peacocks were seen along the track also.

Hairy Shieldbugs were still around mainly on the old dandelion heads,  and birds around today were Whitethroat,  Willow Warblers,  Yellowhammer, Goldfinch and Song Thrush
