Common Snipe from Titchfield handheld phone-scoped. This flushed out of grass and decided to land as close to the hide as possible. Otherwise little else.
At QECP three Spotted Flycatchers were briefly showing at the South end of the slope.
Butterfly numbers are now much reduced with non-whites represented by this Small Copper (above) and two each of Common Blue and Small Heath, all very fresh. For the first time this autumn Migrant Hawkers outnumbered Common Darters by about ten to one although none of the former were perched up for a photo. The small patches of 'still white' Angelica attracted a few insects including Cheilosia spp and Chrysogaster solstitialis hovers, this Tenthredo spp (suggested as possible schaefferi via FB), a few Ectemnius wasps and this Tachinid fly possibly Epicampocera spp.
