Some Norfolk stuff...
We had a very pleasant week in Norfolk, staying in Cley and touring some of the local lanes, villages and coastal spots.
The hedgerows here were laden with fruits and things of interest. Brambles, sloes, rosehips and hops all decorated on the lane sides along with the seeding heads of clematis or old man's beard. Crickets chirruped away unseen, but butterflies and dragonflies were much more active. Of the former we had Painted Lady, Comma, Red Admiral and Peacock, Small Copper and Speckled Wood. The 'dragons' were more of a challenge as they darted around hardly giving time to see the details to identify them. I was pleased to get good views of Migrant Hawkers, new to me, and Common Darters in many locations.
