Brilliant Week-End

We went out to Bissoe on Sunday (brilliant sunshine) and saw our first ever Poplar Hawk-Moth hanging in the reeds. We were surprised how big it was. Also a newly emerged Broad-bodied Chaser which clumsily flew onto John as he took a picture. I eventually took it off the top of his head and it was still shiny and slightly damp. (the Chaser not his head).

On Saturday we went to Goss Moor and found this fantastic Emperor Dragonfly as well as a Golden-ringed. Also of interest was a single Green Hairstreak as we have never seen any there.

This gives me the creeps. Sue

Up Close.

I have been working in Devon and Cornwall over the last 2 weeks and have taken most of these Macro shots around the outbuilders and Station yards. John

Catching Up.

These are a few birds from the past week, including our first Siskin in the wild instead of on a red peanut bag in the garden. We also had our first Spotted Flycatchers for this year.
The Butterflies and Moths have been taken over the last couple of weeks.
