A day out to Pensthorpe was a welcoming break for me. Something that I needed right now. Though my back will not agree with me. I did a lot of walking, making my way to as many of the hides as I could, including a couple of new ones, not that there were anything to see in either of them. The more productive hides were the woodland hide and the hides overlooking the wader scrapes. In these hides, I saw a muntjac deer, marsh tits, young blue and great tits, chaffinches, little ringed plovers, 6 green sandpipers and lapwings respectfully. There were also many dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies, including banded demoiselles, black-tailed skimmers, brown hawkers, meadow browns, peacocks, large, small and possibly Essex skippers, commas, and red admirals.
