21st July 2016
On Thursday evening I went for a pre-dusk stroll at Whitlingham. The temperature had dropped to a bearable level, but it was a bit late for seeing insects. The broad was quiet, with no sign of the neck-banded Greylag Goose present earlier in the month. A family of Pied Wagtails were catching insects along the slipway, and I also noticed a new Cranefly (although I've not identified it yet) and a leaf mine in burdock caused by Phytomyza lappae.
