Chard Res...is very, very quiet

In fact it may have died about six months ago, completely unnoticed until now. The lack of birds there is staggering - I don't think I've ever seen it so lifeless!!  Not sure if it's just a weird year we're having or whether it's because the management there is continuously hacking everything down and not re-planting...hmm? Or, because the water level is so high, everything there has drowned, except the fish of course...

Well, there was a little bit of life in the meadows but not nearly as much as you would expect there either:

Meadow brown: R. Harris
Six-spot burnet moth: R. Harris
Agrion virgo, male: R. Harris
Agrion virgo: R. Harris
