Despite the best attempts of the weather we managed some photos! It was cool and cloudy, but the orchids were splendid and at least we - well mum- found a marsh fritillary.

The first gold swift of the year - beautifully fresh in the warm sunny evening light. Looking forward to seeing our small, but thriving, population lekking ( pre-mating courtship dance based on pineapple scented pheromones). This was a male - not yet active as there were no females out yet.

Lovely to see this superb building renovated and open to the public - free of charge. Fantastic pieces of Liberty woven fabrics; many Ruskin and Turner watercolours; Bridget Riley op art; Lucien Freud portraits and Graham Sutherland watercolours...a good day out - didn't spend too long there as we had to stock up with naan breads and spices - not to mention squashing Molly and all her stuff into the car.

Despite the generally cold, windy weather, we managed to moth trap last night....not looking good for tonight though! Highlights were the lesser swallow prominent and the may bug.
