Butterflies and Orchids

To Cleeve Common and Prestbury Hill today.

Good numbers of Dark Green Fritillary and 100’s of Marbled Whites and Small Heath.  I managed to find just one Frog and many Musk Orchid.

Birds of Northumberland

Butterflies were sparse in cold dull weather but bird-life is prolific.  These are some if the photographs I was able to get.  The best record however was Quail in Druridge Bay.
