Yesterday I went to Kenidjack valley in the hope of finding a few butterflies, the afternoon was hot and the wrong time of day as in the heat butterflies do not hang around. High numbers of Orange tip, Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary and common blues butterflies were around but really difficult to pin down. Small copper, Spotted Wood and the whites were also there but I did not get a good enough shots of these to post.
Tonight we did a moorland walk, and to my surprise we found a pair of Dunlin feeding around some brackish water, could it be a breeding pair?This would be verry unusual as they generally breed much further North. Images taken with a Nikon Coolpix 7000
