The Little Grebe at Banks Pond has produced three young. Nothing so unusual in that, they manage every other year on average but this year has been memorable for the absence of a pair. Since its arrival in late April I've only ever seen one adult there and rarely at that so it looks like absent father crept in and crept out again.
Typical view of Brown China Mark very common at the pond in July but one of those frustrating moths that swivels to the other side of the perch it lands on and hangs upside down.
Having seen lots of Burnet moths when I've managed to get to the coast in the last few weeks they are now arriving on parch both Narrow bordered five spot and six spot generally preferring thistle flowers for the marital bed.
