A Couple Hours in a Bog

Small Red Damselfly - teneral male - superbly camouflaged amongst the rushes.
Only a brief look at the estuary today, just as the tide was dropping. Best bird was a single Black-tailed Godwit but I also recorded 27+ Sandwich Tern, 2 first-summer Mediterranean Gulls and 75+ Black-headed Gulls.

Speckled Fanner - Glyphipterix thrasonella - a beautiful and common 'micro' but not one I've seen before!

Clouded Buff on Round-leaved Sundew. What a moth!

Brown China-mark - a remarkable moth. The larvae are aquatic, constructing a case similar to those made by caddisfly larvae.

Bog Asphodel
