Hummer tops the bill
This one of the 2+ Hummingbird Hawkmoths that were the highlight of a tour of Tophill Low NR, East Yorks on Saturday. Showing well on and off in the evening sun, these by far the best of any moths encountered during the day, with the moth traps reportly turning up nothing more than the norm while I was trying to find a suit suitable for the Little Bro's forthcoming wedding day.
With no count of the Marbled Whites this week, I opted to photograph one instead. I'm sure this isn't the best looking of the number on the wing.
This cracking Comma was at the south end of the site.
Quiet day birding. A Common Sandpiper on D Wall a sign of autumn and a '2nd summer' Little Gull drifted through.
Other than 2 Common Darters, the dragonfly numbers were low... so no more typing on the subject.
