Phew! What a scorcher! This morning I picked up The Leicester Llama at 08.30 for a day looking for insects. Our first stop was Glapthorn Cow Pasture where I’ve spectacularly failed to ever photograph Black Hairstreak… well not today baby. Only problem we had were non of the insects that came down were pristine. Still, I’ve broken my duck.
A few other Butterflies with Large Skipper, Meadow Brown and Ringlet being seen as well as a Brown Hawker and a Red Kite.
Moving down the A1 we headed to Paxton Pits to look for the recently discovered Norfolk Hawkers. Finding Norfolk Hawker wasn’t difficult, photographing them was!
Good numbers of other Odonata with Emperor Dragonfly, Hairy Dragonfly, Four-spotted Chaser and Black-tailed Skimmer as well as Common Blue Damselfly, Variable Damselfly, Red-eyed Damselfly, Blue-tailed Damselfly, Large Red Damselfly all seen.
Music, well the title was a close thing with Black Sabbath but I wanted something up beat…
