Wednesday 21st June 2017

Well, that's it then, the nights will start drawing in again! When I mentioned this to my wife she called me some rather peculiar names - no sense of humour there!
What a HOT day!
Took a trip to Stodmarsh today with my brother which was most enjoyable. 2 Turtle Doves seen by Red Lion public house, On the reserve a Banded Demoiselle just off the carpark towards the alder wood. A few Great Spotted Woodpeckers heard but not seen, 1 Hobby, a few Marsh Harriers around and we did witness a food pass which I failed to photograph. Plenty of mini beasts including at least 5 Commas 10 plus Red Admiral, 3 Peacocks, and an absolute plethora of Meadow Browns. The Reed Bed Hide held 2 Green Sandpipers, A basking Terrapin, Reed and Sedge Warblers, a few Bearded Tits calling and showing, and some cute young Mallard ducklings. Grove Ferry end added a few bits to the list with 4 Black Tailed Godwits from the ramp and 2 Norfolk Hawkers close to David Feast Hide. Just as we were leaving we found an Emerald Damselfly. We also found at Grove end a very aptly named Grove Snail.
