WHITLINGHAM: Summer is here

30th June 2013

A rather typical mid-summer visit to Whitlingham, hot, lots of people and not that many birds. In fact the most interesting thing was probably an emergence of butterflies, notably Small Tortoiseshells and Speckled Woods. A Norfolk Hawker near the bird screen and an Emperor along the south shore were the best of the dragonflies. Four Common Terns were fishing on the Great Broad, but that was it for avian highlights. On the way back I walked through the picnic meadow, seeing Orange Hawkweed and Meadow Cranesbill.
