Nipped out onto the Training Area at Area 51 to replenish the feeders and found they have had a proper chewing from a pesky squirrel!

It was very hot and apart from a few rooks and a lone buzzard there wasn’t much around.

What I did notice though was lots of butterflies in the wooded area, especially peacocks (I think).

Bugs n butterflies are not my strong point but I am learning so I stand to be corrected on my guesses, some however I will just leave to those who know!

Knew this was the caterpillar of a Cinnabar Moth because we saw some at Lakenheath on Monday and I was educated!
