Linacre - 9th August 2011 Sunshine, Butterflies and another Sandpiper

I had a lovely walk around Linacre this morning in bright sunshine and 16 dgerees of heat! The highlights were 5 species of butterfly, some lovely new flowers, loads of hoverflies and another Common Sandpiper!

First up were the butterflies with 4 Gatekeepers, 1 Peacock, 5 Meadow Browns, 2 Small Coppers and  2 Speckled Woods.

Lastly, one photograph of the on going works on the middle reservoir.
