A drive over to Muir of Dinnet NNR mid-morning for a couple of hours before the cloud rolled in and the breeze got up!
|Scotch Argus looking quite worn.|
There were plenty of Scotch Argus on the wing today, although most looking a bit worn now. So too the odd Speckled Wood I came across. Very little else to report except for Large White and two Green-veined White.
|Female (above) and male Black Darters along the boardwalk.|
It was very breezy around the boardwalk and the only Dragonflies encountered were Black Darters. A few Emerald Damselflies were also noted but being so delicate and such weak flyers, you had to feel for them getting blown from pillar to post in the stiff breeze.
|This could quite well be my last Sedge Warbler encounter of the year!|
The birding was particularly slow today, with just a couple of Chiffchaff, Jay, Great Spotted Woodpecker and the usual Coal Tits. However, a close encounter with a Sedge Warbler was the highlight from a birding perspective.
