Myself and Trace decided to go over to Wixall in Shropshire this morning as the weather looked promising , the aim was for me to try and get better images of the Large Heath butterfly. This is easier said than done as they always sit low down in the grass making it very difficult to get a clean shot as shown in the image below , nice butterfly crap photo far to messy.
It took a long time a lot of patience and a large amount of luck to get one that decided to sit up just long enough to rattle of a couple of images .
Ringlets and Large Skippers proved a bit more obliging .
Also seen on today,s visit were Brown Hawker , White-faced Darter , Black Darter , Southern Hawker , Stonechat , Curlew , Raven and the added bonus of a Glossy Ibis on flood water just before the entrance to Wixall.
