Its high summer now so birds are taking a back seat although there are waders on the move. At the coast, I had a nice session with Wood Sandpiper the star, just beating Snipe to that honour.
Close to home, the later butterflies are emerging and we have been looking for Purple Hairstreaks in our local wood. Since we found it them ten years ago it has been an annual pilgrimage to re-acquaint ourselves with these beauties. Nearly all the sightings have been of the underside like here, but the dream of getting a photographable view of the topside is still on.
