Otto & Vigo the keeping us on our toes until next weekend, but managed another Big when out this morning. Gatekeepers seem more widespread around Onehouse this year (this one on edge of the playing field).

Grabbed a slo-mo clip on my phone, of this white admiral in Northfield Wood today whilst out for the Big Really is a shame this ancient woodland is treated so disrespectfully by some residents whose properties abut (see previous tweet & photos).

Swifts are about Adam. I’ve heard them over the houses and recorded them on the website for campaign. Also seen over Woolpit, Harleston and in good numbers over Haughley too, where they’ve put boxes up. 👍

Off the mark for Big at different locations in Northfield Wood. Took just binoculars (for the whites) & phone, but butterflies very obliging close to paths. Around a dozen species recorded.

Took a moment to admire this male silver-washed fritillary nectaring on bramble bloom, as my wife and I walked Weimaraners, Otto & Vigo through Northfield Wood this morning.

Didn’t see PEs at Minsmere & haven’t as yet in Northfield Wood (or PH & WLH this year). If only those that litter the roads & verges around my village would afford me more opportunity with my binoculars & demand less with my picker...

I've just signed Plantlife's () petition to my council to help save and protect wildlife on our road verges. Please sign and share to show you care!

Whilst a couple of residents objected to sympathetic mowing of grassed area in Ash Road, Onehouse by they’re seemingly happy with their near-neighbours leaving unwanted garden materials on land following land-gain work... ‘out of sight’ an’ all that! 😡

Seen fresh peacocks in Northfield Wood, Suffolk this week and more of the same, along with small tortoiseshells on my neighbour’s buddleja. Standing in the sun, the sight of these two species and the smell of the buddleja took me back 50 years to my childhood in Claydon.

Submitted a written statement to Mid Suffolk DC yesterday afternoon after witnessing a car driver discard his cigarette butt in Stowmarket (caught on video by my wife). Prospects for a successful prosecution look good, but to coin a topical phrase, it’s just one small step...

Recorded a gatekeeper in Northfield Wood earlier whilst out with the Weimaraners; previously only seen them outside in meadow & along tracks. Grabbed an iPhone shot as it warmed on ferns (silver-washed fritillary in background doing the same).

When Hazel & I ‘butterfly’, food’s often involved. Today no different. Enjoyed seeing several species at as much as the caramel shortbread! Watched large skippers at too as we ate breakfast.

Thanks Kev. Managed a few photos at Minsmere today where just one SWF (male) stayed still for a second or two near the path on the Woodland Trail for a shot. WAs there too & lots of SCs at bottom of Whin Hill. We’ve enjoyed a few days out (& the food!), but back editing tomorrow.

Yep, fresh peacocks on bramble bloom along main ride Matt. I’ve seen brown argus & common blue to north of wood, but not this year as yet. Also saw them to east nr Northfield Road exit in small area of meadow (& a lone small copper), but not visited recently. No hairstreaks yet.

I believe parish councillors should ‘walk the walk’ Adam...
