Summer is here!

Overnight mothing produced very little but this Ruby Tiger was a new one for me. It had a bright pink hind wing which unfortunately does not show in this image.

A walk up the spit revealed masses of Chamomile.
  A female Blackcap was flitting from bush to bush on the beach but didn't stop long enough for a photo!

 It was busy in the harbour with various activities taking place....


Paddle boarding
and fishing!

  I doubt very much if this couple was aware that a permit is needed to fish in the harbour!

Butterflies have been very thin on the ground this year so it was pleasing to see the sun had brought out some Meadow Browns...long may it last!
