Local bits and bobs, late July 2020

Having travelled all the way to Lakenheath for them I just knew the 'known' Large-flowered Hemp Nettles at Billingford Common would pop up  - and they have! I originally checked about 3 weeks ago which was obviously too early. Also on the common were Common Hemp Nettle, a profusion of Water Mint and several Musk Thistles.

Leaving there I had a quick look at Dickleburgh Moor where 3 Little Ringed Plovers, Yellow Wagtail and 17 Little Egrets were the highlights. Back at home I discovered we have plenty of Stone Parsley popping up in the back garden - a speciality umbellifer of the boulder clay with leaves that smell curiously of petrol! Some Fox and Cubs in the lawn were also new for the garden.
Popping into Jus's on 27th he produced 2 nice moths he'd trapped - Poplar Kitten and Coronet.
