Langford Lakes is usually worth a visit, and lately people have been excited about a female Red Footed Falcon. It apparently feeds on moths so as an 'irregular migrant' it chose its time to visit well - last week was our National Moth Week.
As well as the (as usual) stunning photo of the falcon, Abby Eaton also caught this dapper little Green Sandpiper and the Common Darter dragonfly laying its eggs one by one.
The sandpiper is only green because of its legs and the base of its beak, not easy to see. But it is 'the only small bird which dashes up from water's edge with shrill cries' (Collins Pocket Guide to British Birds).
Click on the photos to enlarge and enjoy the pin-sharp focus.
The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
