We had a brief walk around Stoke Park and managed to dodge the showers.

We caught sight of 2 reed buntings and a whitethroat in the marshy area and saw the beautiful fly past of a grey heron at Duchess Pond.

DSC05353I managed almost 90 in focus photos of this grey heron in its short flight across the pond –  the amazing technology of modern mirrorless cameras!

Yesterday the weather was even worse but the sun shone for a few minutes and I couldn’t resist photographing some insects in the garden.

We have been away on holiday on the North Cornwall coast for the past week. I didn’t get much opportunity for nature photos except on this day when we saw some lovely butterflies.

My favourite butterflies were the Common Blues.
