May bugs and birds

 Lapwing. A female unfortunately not sitting which probably means an unsuccessful breeding attempt
 Ringed Plover- one on Southern Lake this evening. A group of Ringed Plover and Dunlin this morning moved on swiftly.
 Reed Warbler- after a frantic singing arrival a lot of the warblers have quietened down now- presumably getting on with work
 Each pair of Swans on the lakes have had six cygnets. The ones on 100 acre still sitting.
Cochylis atricaptana?

Dichrorampha plumbana/ aeratana  (cheers Billy)
 Plenty of micro-moths in the vegetation now. Nettle-taps, Grapholita sp (bottom pic) 
 And the odd macro moth too- Common Carpet
 Lots of minute beetles on the charlock flowers
 Leucozona lucorum- been looking for one of these.
Thyme-leaved Speedwell- found by Frankie along 100 acre path
