I saw a Fox today asleep on the north tip of south isle. I thought at first it had been shot, as it lay partly in mud. But no, it woke up!

To me this is the villain that has wiped out the Tern chicks. I know some people are fond of Foxes but not when they take my terns!

For the last two days, seen in a glade in the wood, 3

Speckled Wood butterflies.

2 of them dancing around together, for long spells.

3 spots on the hind wings, which I believe

indicates second brood.

Both Brown Hawker and Migrant Hawker dragonfly active in the south east corner, main lodge, near the tall iris.
Good to meet Mike Reed and his pal Charlie who were Dragonfly aficionados.

This morning: a Fox in the corner of the stubble where the Buzzards had been. Certainly preening and may have been finishing a meal.
