We took Bea to Warnham Reserve for lunch, we had delicious soup. This was my first visit for about six weeks, and the my first big nature outing since sciatica hit me. It was good to get out again. The meadow had been mown and I just saw three butterflies: a Speckled wood, a Small copper in poor condition and a White, species unknown. The swan family is still going strong, they came over for some bread at the Heron Hide. There were a lot of large bees on mauve flowers by the dipping ponds.
