The first insect we saw was Beautiful Demoiselle, with a minimum of 4 males seen on the stream by the main path.
Also present on the same stretch of stream were 1 Large Red Damselfly and two Golden-ringed Dragonflies.
Walking up to The Terrace, the sun came out and so did the butterflies. A minimum of 6 Red Admirals were feeding on the Verbena, along with Small Tortoiseshell (2), Gatekeeper, Painted Lady (1), Comma (2), Large White and a single Common Darter dragonfly.
The final insect of note was a Hummingbird Hawk Moth that Jayne found feeding in the walled garden.
