☀️☁️21C Wednesday 9th May 2018 ~ Wednesday I spent the morning at Brandon Marsh, mainly checking out the woods and meadows for Butterflies and Odonata. There was nothing new to add to the year lists, with the exception of Large Red Damselfly, with one or two around River Meadow and Ted Jury Hide. Birds of note included a Grasshopper Warbler on farm reedbed, singing Lesser Whitethroat, Cuckoo and an unprecedented five Hobbies feeding over Newlands. Most likely feasting on St. Marks flies, with their favourite food dragonflies at a premium this time of year.
