Saturday 27th June... I headed up to Burnham Overy in the morning to go birding. Saw a few moths in the process including Sea-blite Groundling Scrobipalpa suaedella, Pearl Grass-veneer Catoptria pinella and Yellow Shell.

Among the other insect-life were 4 Painted Ladies and these:
Red Admiral, Burnham Overy, 27th June
Blue-tailed Damselfly, Burnham Overy, 27th June
Volucella bombylans, Burnham Overy, 27th June - spent a while trying to figure out if this was a Red-tailed Bumblebee or some other kind of bumblebee before it dawned on me that it was a hoverfly!
Honeysuckle, Burnham Overy, 27th June
In the evening I headed back up to the coast to do some mothing with Dave at Brancaster. I'll save that for another post, maybe tomorrow...
