Spring is Sprung

From the top: A little grebe from Cromford Canal; a male orange tip from Attenborough; little ringed plover, male ruff, male shelduck, curlew and avocet from Frampton Marsh; and chiffchaff and nightingale from Whisby.

Butterflies and Dragonflies

A few from the archives; can’t wait to see them all again this summer. From the top: butterflies – large white, marbled white, mating marsh fritillaries, peacock, chalk hill blue, and a unique sighting – the scarce yellow-legged tortoiseshell; dragonflies – female broad-bodied chaser, male banded demoiselle.

Spring at Attenborough

Attenborough Nature Reserve, near Nottingham, really comes alive in Springtime and we spend as much time as we can there, looking for early butterflies and the warblers arriving. (Whitethroat and Male Orange Tip).
