Small Skipper – Felbrigg Park
The weather has been rather mixed of late, not as hot as the previous week, with cloudy skies, humid but no rain to speak of – not ideal conditions for my afternoon walk around the lake. I was looking for insects really, so I was pleased to see a Spotted Flycatcher, feeding in the Alders, west of the lake and I observed that the female Gadwall is now protecting her one remaining off-spring. I did see Small Skipper – we had Essex Skipper on the heath during the NENBC mid-week walk on Wednesday, and Small Red-eyed Damselfly on the lake – my first for the year.
