Hackbridge Carnival Weekend

 Beddington Farmlands at the local carnival
 Hackbridge carnival in the church
 Hackbridge 'A Happy Place' lol (a mental place maybe?)
 Purple Hairstreak (above and below)

Small Fan foot (cheers Sean) 
Moth Mullein near the horse field - a bit of Surrey oddity (thanks Peter) 
Spent the weekend trying to recruit locals to the nature reserve support group and today had a look round the farmlands and then popped into Wilderness Island (for a botany survey with Derek's group).

Quite a few Whitethroat young around this morning, good numbers of butterflies, Shelducks still going strong, good numbers of Swifts in the evenings recently (400+), 1 Green Sandpiper, a few Black-headed Gulls in the week and 1-2 pairs of Sand Martins.

Nice1 Jaff. The hairstreak more of less landed on me and then wouldn't leave. I took it home, showed it round the obs and then it flew off. Weird.
