Winding Down...

The 2013 flight season is very much winding down - today's torrential deluges will not have helped at all (though mercifully the downpours were not accompanied by strong winds, which kill off adults mercilessly). 

Yesterday, Neil and I visited our new mega site in Sussex but saw less than half the numbers seen the previous Sunday, including this old, battered and tired female (she did not, I hasten to add, seek to lay on that exposed yellowing small-leaved sallow - had she done so I would have kicked her, and taken the egg for captive breeding) -

NB  This blog functions all year round, not just during the flight season.  Keep visiting, keep posting.
