Shimpling and Dickleburgh Moor, 17 August 2018

Belinda and I had a ramble around the Shimpling area this morning with the man aim for her to try out her new Canon 70-300mm lens before we head off on our travels.
And very pleasant it was with 6 Common Buzzards, a few Blackcaps 'tacking' in the hedgerows and good numbers of butterflies - Brown Argus, Green-veined White, Large White, Small White, Comma, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown and an absolutely tiny Common Blue which allowed me to pick it up. Apparantly the diminutive size of many of this 2nd generation is due to the high temperatures over the summer.

This afternoon I popped over to Dickleburgh Moor and gave a it a good check. My rewards were 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Snipe, 96 Lapwings, Turtle Dove, Stock Dove, Sparrowhawk and Common Buzzard.

All the photos below were taken with Belinda's new lens.
