Les and I went to Fingringhoe wick to try for adders on Saturday 26th August but were unrewarded, the birding was good with a good but brief view of a nightingale out in the sunshine, lesser and common whitethroats and bullies being the highlights. the only pictures were of these varied insects, the moth having fantastically cryptic plumage, it must be almost invisible on the trunk of a dark tree, There were a few butterflies about with a small copper pictured. Dragonflies were numerous and the one above is a ruddy darter. The hoverfly and the spider I have also been unable to identify yet.
Today I went to Fowlmere but the only thing of interest seen was a slug that was 1.5 inches longer then my iphone!
