A few insects

After the excitement of the Albatross, it’s back to migration on the Downs, which seems to be a bit slower than last year, although we’ve had Redstart, Whinchat and Spotted Flycatchers at home so far.  It’s also a good time for insects, with a few late butterflies, and an excellent variety of dragonflies and damselflies in the wetland  behind us.
