Better for Butterflies

At the Waterworks, a real surprise was the appearance of a Painted Lady butterfly that settled briefly on a flower before moving on, thus evading my hapless attempts for a photograph.  Other lepi's included an Orange-Tip, Peacock, a couple of Speckled Wood, Comma, and Brimstone.

Common Vetch

Common-Blue Damselfly have emerged from the small pond in the wildlife garden, and a female Banded Demoiselle was in flight around the meadow pursued by a Peacock butterfly.

On the bird front, all four species of our common hirundines were noted, a Kingfisher was heard flying up the relief channel where a stalking Little Egret took advantage of the much lower water levels.  A Common Kestrel flew over.

A lovely warm day, more of these please.
