2 visits to new areas of Thursley Common away from the popular Moat Car Park. Effort was concentrated towards the southern end, where mosaic-style management seems to be a lot more prominent and consequently the area is a lot more biodiverse. Dartford Warbl...

A quick visit to Holt CP where the highlight was a single Broad-bordered Bee Hawk-moth. A rather tatty Green Hairstreak was also a nice find on the ride behind the car park, along with a couple of Hairy Dragonflies & Holly Blues. A single, rather sorrowful-...

A morning spent twitching various things along the North Norfolk coast beginning with the juv. Iceland Gull at King's Lynn Docks. This rather brutish individual showed well along the embankment in terrible light, coming into feed on Tesco's finest bread! Ic...
