WWT catch-up..








The initial fine morning was soon swamped with cloud but thankfully no rain.
At WWT caught up with Paul, Geoff, Alex (briefly and for the first time in a couple of years) and Tony and Jean.

Along the riverbank usual numbers of singing Acros plus two Lesser Whitethroats but only a single Common - hope I'm wrong but initial impression is that they are well down. Overhead all three martins, probably 25+ in total but no other decent migrants. Distant single Peregrine and Red Kite. Insect-wise Rhingia campestris was notable and Osmia bicornis (above) was using a bee hotel. Plenty of unidentifiable red/yellow/black Nomadas, just a single Large Red Damsel and NO butterflies at all!!
