Dips and bobs

In the garden on Saturday afternoon up to 6 Small Tortoiseshells seen on Buddlea, 2 Red Admirals. On Tuesday 4th September, a Buzzard flew north right over the southern carraigeway along the A12 just north of Hopton. A trip to Landguard again failed to reveal the sparrow. A Tawny Owl was heard calling kewick several times as we arrived back home at 9pm. A male Migrant Hawker was seen perched on the Pergoda in the garden on Wednesday 5th September & Thursday 6th September. On friday 7th September, a Common Frog perched on a Lily pad at lunchtime. At Winterton early evening no Emeralds seen but literally 1000's of Silver Y Moths seen in the Purple heather around 30 Graylings seen and 1 Small Tortoiseshell, 5 Wheatears seen and several Common Terns heard and 1 winter plumaged Guillemot was on the sea.
