the best of the rest

Elsewhere whilst on holiday on the Lleyn Peninsular I had a Purple Hairstreak and Southern Hawker (see photo of it eating a wasp) at PortMerion and a distant Osprey on the estuary here, and 2 Whooper Swans and 5 Little Egrets at the Glassyln Marshes near Porthmadog on the 10th whilst traveling home along the Conwy valley we had an Osprey over the river Conwy near Dolgarrog.

Closer to home Autumn seems to be coming in thick and fast with many of trees now turning; especialy the Limes and Poplars, and the Swifts steadily disappearing summer will soon be gone. Signs of Autumn where evident in Wavertree Mystery Park yesterday with the Long Tailed Tits now grouping up the flock contained a Lesser Whitethroat and Chiff Chaff. In Greenbank Park Nuthatch and Willow Warbler where both in song, along with Great Spotted Woodpecker, Treecreeper, Swallows, Grey Heron, female Tufted Duck, Farm Goose, Swift, and 2 Red Eared Terrapins.
