WHITLINGHAM: Little Gull & diptera

18th April 2019

A quick evening visit to Whitlingham to catch up with some of the birds that had been passing through the valley recently was successful, with a single adult Little Gull hawking over the Great Broad and two Arctic Terns also present. Fortunately my vantage point was level with a large bank of brambles, and in a quiet moment I caught the rattle of a Lesser Whitethroat, whihc I eventually saw skulking about near the middle. Some insects were basking in the evening sun, including this Syrphus torvus and another that probably can't be identified from photos.
