Fairhaven Garden

No trip to the Norfolk Broads would be complete without Egyptian Geese so here's one at Fairhaven Garden.

Of far more interest to me was the presence of another introduced species now well established in much of southern Britain. The Rhododendron Leafhopper is a very pretty insect closeup. It appears rather reddish and moth-like in flight but is predominantly green at rest.
