Cosmeston

A Clouded Yellow was at the far end of the east paddock this morning, plus Gatekeeper, Ringlet, Meadow Brown, Small Skipper. Black-tailed Skimmer on the boardwalk. Bird-wise the GCG is still sitting on the nest in the Water Bistort in W lake 'bay' and there's a seemingly completely free-floating nest with a GCG sitting, currently near the main bridge. Mute Swan with 6 half-grown cygnets, 2 ad Herons incl a very confiding one by the cafe. Also 4 Tufted Ducks present and 16 Black-Headed Gulls on the posts. Oh I forgot, an old friend, Lesser BB Gull with blue Darvic ring 3UF in white characters. Here's three phone pix:
