Playing catch-up... Flatford Mill

We have returned from our Easter travels, and spent this afternoon closer to home at Flatford Mill. It was a rather grey scene, and judging by the size of the puddles, we arrived at a timely moment after a heavy downpour.

The lack of sunshine meant that there were few insects on the wing and no sign of newts in the pond. However, I kept a sharp eye open as we made our way along the towpath, and David took the photo above of what I believe are Green Dock Leaf Beetle (Gastrophysa viridula) eggs.

It was a joy to find Iris ...

... and Prunus in flower in the RSPB Wildlife Garden. I hope there will be butterflies on the wing when we go next time.

Flatford Mill always looks such an interesting place to visit. I'm not seeing many insects here either since it went colder and wetter.
