Re: BUTTERFLIES

It is now at least two weeks since I saw a butterfly in the garden. Where have they all gone?

Re: STARLINGS

I was trying to do a little work in the back garden today and the din from Sturklets in the neighbouring trees and bushes was almost unbearable. There must have been dozens of them. This of course is very good news and I'll keep on telling myself that. :dj:

My first sighting today. A dragonfly with yellow and black bands.
Probably a Golden-ringed Dragonfly :) Well spotted.

After complaining about the lack of Sturklets recently my garden has suddenly become a hotspot for them. I think partly because of the bathing facilities but there has been an audible presence most of the time. I think I am benefitting from some late broods.
