I went to Cley to see the Silvery Gem and just so it wasn't a trip to see a moth I stopped of at Salthouse Heath and Holt Country Park to see some butterflies.
Highlight has to be the Camberwell Beauty, although all four sightings were brief it was great to see it. Couldn't get any pictures though as total time I saw it stationary probably added up to 2 seconds.
I was impress with the number of butterfly species seen though and here they are.
Silver Studded Blue
Silver Washed Fritillary
Also saw Turtle Dove and Hobby at Salthouse and this at Holt
Welcome to my birding blog. I am Gary and I really enjoy birding and wildlife watching. I love going to see new UK birds and really like it when they turn up in Norfolk. I now aim to find a few more birds and hopefully on my two new patches.
More details, photos and reports can be found on my website.
My patches are in North Walsham and Gimingham so if you have any news please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
