The Case of the Vanishing Wall

Couldn't find too much today, but shouldn't complain about getting good views of a greenshank, two little ringed plovers (1 ad 1 juv) and three green sandpipers just fifteen minutes walk from my street.

A few glimpses of sun brought out some knapweed-botherers, with a few each of peacock, green-veined white, red admiral and meadow brown along the top track.

Wall brown butterflies used to be quite common around Aldcliffe, but I haven't seen a single one in several years. They seem to have been replaced by speckled wood down here.

The weather wasn't too good for dragonflies, but one each of emperor and brown hawker were seen patrolling.
