Glapthorn Insects

Of course the target was the Hairstreak, which flies at the end of June and start of July, but there was loads else to see. The site was heaving with insects and also butterfly watchers. There must have been eight cars parked at one point.

I was pleased with the hoverflies. There were at least six species of large hover around and I could have done with longer to watch them. Garden Warbler sang, a Nuthatch called and Common Buzzard and Red kite drifted overhead. Excellent!
