Lunchtime on the western Nene Washes

A bike around the Bradley Fen and Padholme Pumping Station area east of Peterborough provided the opportunity to photograph the moths and butterflies below (all at the latter site). There were plenty of other leps there including a Silver Y and Gatekeepers. An Emperor dragonfly was near Bradley Fen and single Redshank, Snipe and Greenshank were all on the High Wash floods just a bit further east.
