A good selection of moths today, although nothing out of the ordinary, some more Grass Snake pictures and plenty of Sand Martins (600+) and Swifts(200).

J6x4 was already half way through the moths so I'm not sure how much had done a bunk whilst I was looking (unsuccessfully!)  for Jim and Jackie's Orange Tip caterpillar.

On Ivy Lake one Great Crested Grebe taking fish back and forth so presumably to a sitting female or small young and the other pair building a typical ridiculous floating nest.

A brief look at Ibsley produced little although the showers had brought down the above mentioned aerialists, a male Reed Bunting was collecting insects along the shoreline in the company of a Lapwing and this single, small Bee Orchid was nearby.
