Astbury Insects

Decided as its gone quiet bird wise to have another look to see what insects are on the wing this time of the year around the mere. Good numbers of Ringlet still with around 14 individuals noted along with a fresh looking Holy Blue obviously second hatching . Also noted Comma , Large and Small Skippers , Red Admiral , Large and Small White , Gatekeeper and plenty of Meadow Browns. Five Common Darter were on the wing along with a female Broad Bodied Chaser and really good number of Common Blue Damselflies around 50 plus. A nice looking Hoverfly which I managed to photograph but as yet unidentified and a new moth at the site for me a Blackneck , and two Six Spot Burnet Moths.
