Nature Walk Guernsey

David took me to visit the hide at La Claire Mare nature reserve on a warm sunny afternoon. There were lots of butterflies around - very striking Small Coppers and lots of  Speckled Woods. From the hide we had good views of Greenshank, Dunlin, Egrets and Teal. After a walk along the coast, I headed ended up photographing the very many insects on the Ivy flowers. The Hornet Hoverfly was particularly striking for it large size and colouration and I also enjoyed the striped bee Colletes hederae which has only in recent years spread through southern England as far as  Staffordshire
