Spring marches on...

No new birds this lunchtime (although two singing Blackcaps), but a bit of sunshine encouraged a little more life to reveal itself at the Nunnery Lakes. New for the year were Dark-edged Bee-fly Bombylius major, the bumblebees Bombus hortorum, terrestris and pascuorum, a Zebra Spider Salticus scenicus, Pied Shield-bug Sehirus bicolor, plus a few new plants including Common Stork's-bill and Red Currant. Also nice to see the longhorn moths Adela cuprella around the sallow tops that Richard discovered last week and according to the excellent Norfolk Moths website, rather a good record in the Brecks!
