Gorse Flat-body and Kestrel with lizard

Iping Common was at its best today, though the wind was strong and cold at times. A Kestrel soared over the valley and returned to the same area many times. It dived and captured a lizard. I saw a Great Grey Shrike twice in its usual valley and rescued a micromoth from a puddle. I later identified it as a Gorse Flat-body whose food plant is Gorse – plenty of that around.
