A small group met at Buxton Heath near Norwich in Norfolk and spent a very enjoyable day among the specialised heathland and marshland flora and fauna
There were still some Silver-studded Blues on the wing but the season has been very early this year
Lots of spiders including the impressive Funnel Web Spiders and a very striking flightless female Rusty Tussock Moth female laying eggs in the heather
Dave McKay took this charming shot of a Green Leafhopper Cicadella viridis and we all managed images of the Grasshoppers and Crickets
For me, the star species this year was the Marsh Helleborine at the start of its season and showing in very large numbers spread over a wide area.
