A weekend with sunshine

For a change it was actually warm and bright for most of the weekend. There certainly hasn't been enough good hot weekends this summer.

Above, the first Red Underwing of the year posing for a picture after the one last weekend was sat up high on a building. This Orange Swift the best of the trapped macromoths.

Despite the sunshine, the Odonata numbers aren't great... 6 Emerald Damselfly, 17 Migrant Hawkers and 14 Ruddy Darters on the count. Disappointing the way the season turned out after the cracking start but like everyone else you can only see what is there.

The Black-necked Grebe remained... soon be time to start birding again... as the Larids start to increase!
