Saturday 12th June

A Nuthatch in Dead Dolphin Wood was the highlight with an early morning passage of 180+ Swift also notable, otherwise there was a very midsummer feeling to proceedings. 

Wildlife News: The first Emperor dragonflies of the year were on the wing, already holding territory over the ponds, a Painted Lady was on the Dune Ridge and large numbers of Silvery Leafcutter Megachile leachella were present. Several new species for the Warren were again recorded including Small Beegrapper Thecophora atra and Short-horned Yellow-faced Bee Hylaeus brevicornis

Small Beegrabber - Alan Keatley

Short-horned Yellow-faced Bee - Alan Keatley
