Kilnsea Wetlands in June

Yesterday we enjoyed slightly better weather than last week's visit to Kilnsea.  The Avocet chicks were popular as were the tatty Buzzard and Red Kite.  In the afternoon in the warm strong westerley wind a few butterflies emerged and tried to warm themselves out of the major gusts.  This is predicted to be a bumper year for Painted Ladies, so it was gratifying to find our first for Wednesday afternoons
