Not really had the chance to point the camera at any birdlife for a few weeks turned into a bit of a twitcher with 1 lifer on the 15/6 in the form of a cracking Pacific Swift down in Suffolk & then only my 2nd Melodious Warbler for Britain in Notts last weekend (22nd) with work inbetween just no real quality time to get out & about so a little bit of back garden mothing...........

Angle Shades
Common Swift
Garden Carpet
Common Marbled Carpet

A trip into Norfolk to Strumpshaw Fen RSPB for Norfolk Hawkers & Hairy Dragonflies produced both but no photos however managed some photos of Swallowtail so all was not lost.......

Finally a txt from Adam"Archie"Archer had me making a quick nip up the A5 for a Small Elephant Hawkmoth a species I've only ever seen once & never photographed (Cheers mate)

1st June 2013

Decided to head back to Gilfach Farm today after most of my shots were binned due to a dodgy camera (Hopefully back from Canon shortly?) so used my old Mk111 body with a lot better results also caught up with Richard Smith & Mick Southcott (first time since Shetland last Autumn) Great few hrs with good company & good birds.......
