Cygnets and Snipe-flies

Made an effort to snap the family portrait of the Mute Swans this morning, and there they were dabbling around in a summer morning idyll

A Downlooker Snipe-fly was very obligingly looking down near the car park

And another obliging species was Whitethroat, of which there are a few in their traditional positions (on edges - Hawthorn especially). Warblers seem to be quite numerous this year, except perhaps Willow Warbler, which are far less numerous than they used to be I'm sure.

On the recording front Aspen, Broad-leaved Dock, Thyme-leaved Speedwell, Cock's-foot, Changing Forget-me-not and House Martin were the latest additions over the last 24 hours, and I'm slowly wrestling a Gymnopus species of mushroom to the ground.
