Glapthorn Cow Pastures

A trip down to Glapthorn Cow Pastures in Cambridgeshire today in search of the elusive Black Hairstreak. We didn’t find him, but there were lots of great butterflies to compensate. Again, we went early and came back early to get the coolest part of the day.  From the top: Small Skipper, Ringlet and Meadow Brown.Small SkipperRingletMeadow Brown

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.
