We took a short trip to the Landguard end of Felixstowe on Saturday afternoon to see if we could find any frogspawn. This area is monitored closely for wildlife by the Landguard Bird Observatory.
The weather was very grey, but mild. There were one or two rabbits in the scrub that fronts the container park for the port.
The photo above shows the backdrop. If you turn round, you can almost see the sea.
It only takes a few minutes to reach the pond. It seemed smaller than we remembered.
There was a lot of weed so it was difficult to distinguish one form of life from another.
I darkened my photo once I was home to see if a bit more contrast revealed anything further. What can you see?
The photo above shows the pond... and the one below shows two insects. I thought they might be a kind of water beetle but on enlarging the photo a bit, it is clear that they are a species of fly.
