Bee on ‘flag’, Felbrigg Lake

Managed a walk out this afternoon. Weather continues warm, overcast and showery. Little to report – certainly very few insects, but did manage to find an exuvia of a larger dragonfly species, at ‘dragon corner’, but no sign of it’s occupant. Four Mandarin, two males and two females were on the lake, as were a couple of male Tufted and numerous moulting Mallards. The Mute Swan family remains intact, with five youngsters and I heard a Grey Wagtail on my way round the lake. Ian at the Forge tells me he saw Spotted Flycatcher in his garden a couple of days ago. Tawny Owl were calling to each other from the shelter-belt and there was a Whitethroat collecting insects in the same locality.
