2nd July 2014

Weather: S 1, 0/8 cloud, good vis but hazy

News of the Orchid, found on Sunday, filtered through to the mainland and was duly twitched by a couple of members.

Common Spotted Orchid - photographed on Sunday with more flowers showing (DB)

The first Willow Warbler of the autumn arrived and presumably the same  Whitethroat from yesterday was still present.  A juvenile Pied Wagtail remained around the islands and a Common Sandpiper was noted.

Chrysis ignita (BSB)

Meanwhile a couple of Chrysis ignita were found in the Obs (see above). These are a Ruby-tailed Wasp, a cuckoo (nest parasite) of species including Mason Bees.
