A few from work, again

We have had a family of four Wrens fledge form a nest in the drift mine at work. They have nested in the mine for the last three years at least, always choosing a different hole in the wall to build their nest. This is the first time I have seen them fledge. Three of them left the mine before visitors arrived but one of the guides had to carry the fourth out while he was taking a tour down the mine. I have also added some other images that I have taken at work over the past couple of weeks.

The Adult birds were trying to tempt them out with food.

The majority of Damselflies I have seen at work so far this year are Large Reds

This one landed next to a Shield Bug

Plenty of Common Blue Butterflies. I wish the background hadn’t been as messy it could have been a canny shot

A fair few Ringlets about as well

Hoverfly hovering

I like the colour of its eyes

Common White Wave moth
