Sammy the Butterfly, Queen Boo

Sammy’s early morning swim woke us up then we headed off to Warnham Nature Reserve for lunch and a walk round the nature trail. She had several Springwatch moments, the cygnets getting top marks. We saw nuthatches at a feeding station, and watched three terns on two nesting platforms in the lake, plus three herons the other side of the lake. Woodpigeons received a lot of attention, with some butterfly shouts in the meadows – Meadow Browns, some skippers, a Speckled Wood and a Painted Lady on some bramble flowers. No dragonflies today on the ponds, too overcast perhaps. Another blog may be needed to cover the metal detecting on the beach and a swim later.
