Today's Findings

After a 3 week sabbatical (due to holiday) from the Farm I spent 4 hours down there this morning. It was lovely down there this morning. A lot of birds around - in particular hurindines are gathering for there trip south - a flock of over a 100 was buzzing about all morning (mixture of Swallow, Sand and House Martins).

There were lots of dragonflies and butterflies about. I found my first Common Hawker. Here are some pics. I also checked the webcam and found another new addition!

Clouded Yellow

Common Hawker



Golden Ringed

Newly emerged Migrant Hawker

Small Copper

Speckled Wood


  1. Nice to see the Clouded Yellows are still there,stunning Dragon collection.

  2. Nice common hawker Dougy. Must get down there and try and find one. Love the badger video but disappointed that you haven't identified those moths in the footage :-)
