Castor Honey

To think we nearly didn't go to the Hanglands. Well we were glad we did as the reward was a Honey Buzzard (my third and Weedon's World of Nature's first in the PBC area) circling over Ailsworth Heath before being encouraged to drift off roughly west by a Common Buzzard rising from the wood calling.

The insects were also good with some more of the Euro-wasps" seen feeding on umbellifers plus these.

Emerald Damselfly (Lestes sponsa), female

Ruddy Darter (Sympetrum sanguineum)

Conops quadrifasciata a happy couple of conopid flies

Sphaerophoria (scripta?) (a hover fly)
