Painted Lady, one of several which have appeared over the past couple of days – I saw several at Cley on Monday

Spent most of the morning showing David, the Director of Norfolk Rivers Trust, several sites of interest along the upper Gur and Scarrow Becks. Managed to get out, late afternoon, to Felbrigg Park. Not surprisingly, with this recent bout of warm sunny weather, I spent most of my time looking for insects. Unfortunately, I only found a few Damselfly species and a couple of beetles. Bird interest was provided by a female Grey Wagtail on the outflow (FPBBS Sect 7), a Cuckoo calling over Paul’s Common and several Chiffchaff, which have just started to sing again.
