Saltholme and A1

Thursday (4th) saw me looking for Essex Skipper down in Cleveland. There were a few small and large Skippers but no Essex so off I went to Saltholme. After a bacon bun and a mug of coffee, I was off to the wildlife watchpoint. Sedge and Reed Warbler put in an appearance as did a Hedgehog but the highlight was watching a couple of Water Vole swimming back and forth gathering Mare’s Tail. On the way back from Saltholme, I stopped at the A1 roundabout. Third time lucky there were at least three White-letter Hairstreak butterflies visiting the flowers along with numerous Bees.
