Ruff – 4th October

What a difference a day makes – it was glorious at the Lagoons this afternoon.  The warm sunshine encouraged some insect activity with at least six Migrant Hawkers and one or two butterflies including a Holly Blue and two Small Tortoiseshells.  The geese had departed into the surrounding fields and the river so it was easier to view the Slurry and two Ruff were spotted among the Lapwings and Black-headed Gulls and nine Common Snipe were enjoying the sun at the reed edges.
