Crowle NNR......

Female Bog-bush Cricket.

Large Emerald.
A full day out today while Trace was at work,saw me visiting this super area,primarily to photograph Odonata,but also to see what else i could find.A few highlights from the avian world were provided by singles of Hobby,male Marsh Harrier and Common Buzzard.The Hobby was watched chasing a Great-spotted Woodpecker on the edge of Will Pitts wood!.But today,the main highlights were provided by a profusion of insects,with several highlights which included a stunning Large Emerald Moth,my first Painted Lady and Gatekeepers of the year and a personal favourite,Bog-bush Cricket,with me locating 3 individuals today,which consisted of a single male and 2 females.They provided fantastic views and i managed to get some great images.Reptile sightings today,included several Common Lizard,with a couple of pregnant females basking in the sun and 2 stunning female Adder,which gave great views as they hid in the undergrowth.A great day despite the Mozzies!.
