Far Ings 14-8-11

With a Butterfly & Insect walk today Mandy & Myself decided to go a bit early and spend some time in Ness Hide first with only a brief flyby from the Kingfisher for our effort.
We started off at Ness Farm at midday and did a walk around the nature reserve to see what we could find,with high wind and not much in the way of sun not a lot was found a few Gate Keeper,1 Meadow Brown,1 Common Blue,Peacocks,Whites & Red Admiral.
On the Dragonfly side was 1 Brown Hawker,5 Migrant Hawker,1 Southern Hawker,3 Common Darter,a few Blue-tail Damselflies along with plenty of Common Blue Damselflies.
Moths included 2 Common Carpet,Agriphila Straminella & Udea Lutealis.
After 3 hours we arrived back at Ness Farm & we returned back to Ness hide for a second attempt at the Kingfisher but only gave a brief closer view other birds of note was
Water Rail,Redshank,Curlew,Yellow Wagtails in double figures,Dunlin,Marsh Harrier ( Adult Male & 1 Juvenile),Teal numbers building up along with a few Shoveler.
