Summer Social at the Moor, 12 September 2021

Ben Potterton of the Otter Trust kindly put on a summer social event at Dickleburgh Moor on Sunday afternoon. Primarily as a thank you for 'biodiversity recording friends' it was a nice way to meet a few people and partake of some tea and cake too!

Needless to say Belinda and I had a wander around the reserve while we were there (and then I repeated part of it to show some ladies from our Wildflower East WhatsApp group some of the plants). Insects probably stole the show however with a lovely Roesel's Bush Cricket found on our walk and around the table with the days catch were Dark Sword Grass moth, Water Scorpion and Box Bug.

Both Little Stints were still present with 1 Greenshank, 1 Ruff, 1 Ringed Plover and a few Snipe but only having my bins meant I couldn't look more thoroughly.

Plants were pretty much the same as in recent days but I did find the other (non-rayed) form of Nodding Bur-marigold.
