Few photos taken on our dog walk in Battisford at lunchtime today (around half a dozen species recorded).

Nice on John. Weather obligating, I’ll take my camera tomorrow when I walk with Hazel and Maddie the Labrador.

I’m relatively new to this ‘butterflying’ lark John, but I’d say that’s a seriously good photo. We’ve a couple of customers off Mill Road and will be walking a Lab on Tuesday up there, so might get some daytime shots. Thanks for mention and again, cracking shot!

Travelled back to Suffolk from our daughter's in Rutland earlier today and, as ever, pulled off the A1 to grab some slo-mo footage of a red kite.

If they’re ‘drinking in’, why give them a choice?

I see customers sitting outside Stowmarket Costa everyday using single-use cups. Why? The same customers every morning during the week, all happy to continue fuel the ‘plastic tide’ with Costa happy to encourage them. Why not sit outside with crockery? I now refuse to visit.

She’s even more cute in the flesh Bill, as you can imagine. I’ve left my wife there to help with puppy duties whilst Abi gets some revision in ahead of her final maths degree exam - Hazel was keen to volunteer!

Dingy Skipper confirmed in northern part of Kings Forest, Suffolk today. Cool winds kept numbers down but a useful 22 counted. Nice to see plenty of Green Hairstreaks too.

First visit of the year to Grove Farm. Nine species of butterflies recorded & bonuses by way of turtle dove (heavily cropped macro lens shot) & orange-tip eggs found on garlic mustard.

‘Inspired by...’ that should read obviously

Feeling a bit like Keanu Reeves’ character in Point Break when he was learning to surf... I found my first orange-tip egg today! Inspired your recent tweets (garlic mustard close to entrance of Grove Farm).

Nice one John and thanks for mention. My wife and I are just back from Black Bourn Valley (Grove Farm) and will post some photos later (9 species); turtle dove was an unexpected bonus.

Took me ages to get my first one a few years ago. They can be very frustrating, but the shots are worth the effort... and then of course, we always want a better one! Took this one last year and uploaded it wirelessly, not realising it was at low-res... lesson learned!

Just read my post again... and cursing predictive text (and me a proofreader and sub-editor an’ all!).
