Weevils and Flies!

  This afternoon I had a look at Porth Hellick and met Mick and Big Al there. Before I arrived, I missed a Green Sandpiper by ten minutes and the Marsh Harrier. Mick also flushed a Short-eared Owl on the down! All I saw were a few Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff and at the crossroads, 2 House Martin and 4 Swallow.

 This Vine Weevil was in the swimming pool building at Star Castle. Later, when I was cleaning the floor, I found two more!  

 Also, this Double-lined Pug was in the castle

  The last few days I've spent taking photos of flies, as they are amazing creatures when you get close to them. When I find time, I will try and identify them all.
