Falco Subbuteo etc......

Fungi-Helvetica coreus.

An all day visit to MSQ again today saw some great sightings enjoyed over the 8 hours on site,which included a superbly confiding 2nd calendar year Hobby which perched in some waterside willows giving cracking views.At least 4 birds were seen today,all immature 2nd calendar year birds,watched hawking St.Marks  flys as in previous visits.Other nice sightings included superb views of Garden and Reed Warblers and a Spotted Flycatcher showed nicely in the plantation,with a single Dunlin watched feeding along the edge of one of the islands and 8 Common Buzzards mewed and performed overhead.Insects were well represented by my first Slender-ground Hoppers of the year,the afore-mentioned Dragonflys in my other blog and a handfull of Green-veined White,Orange Tip,Peacock and Speckled Woods,with my first Small Copper of the year in the heathy area.Also observed today was a nationally scarce Fungi,Helvetica coreus,which was a new species for myself.So another fruitfall visit was had today,along with some decent weather again.
