Part of Thacka Beck  Nature reserve, Which again had been taken over by Gulls, mainly Juvenile Lesser Black-Backed Gulls.             

Had a walk round the new reserve this morning, but as can be seen just gulls occupying most of the reserve. There was three juvenile Moorhens but that was about it, apart from  the Swallows and Martins touching the water for drinks or insects.
           Up at the Flash a few Mallard and approx. 200 Lapwing. The sun was out and it was a beautiful morning, and yet there was a dearth of butterflies.

There was plenty of insects about and these hover flies were putting on a good show.



I know I have got pics of 2 different species here but I won't attempt to name them, as there are so many different kinds and my knowledge of them is limited.
