Contrast.

A sharp contrast today at Titchfield Haven Nature reserve. Head splitting with noise from the Black-headed Gull nest colony on the islands where the young gulls have become troubled teanagers! To the quiet of the back paths where insects are silent except the low hum of the bees.

THis Godwit decided it was too noisy near the gulls and decided to relocate.

A Comma Butterfly – They are a widespread species in southern England and their range is expanding northwards. The most widely used foodplant’s are Common Nettle and Willow tree leaves.

A new insect for me today was this Golden-bloomed grey longhorn beetle.

Black-tailed skimmer Dragonfly.
