At this time of year, as in Orkney, so in Suffolk. There was a lot of slime mould about, in the form of Scrambled Egg mould (or Dog's Vomit mould, if you prefer, but I suspect you don't!).
We were chuffed to see species of butterfly that either aren't common or do not put in an appearance in Orkney. Here's a Comma that is trying it's darnedest to be just an autumnal leaf, honest.
And we did have great views of a Southern Hawker hunting along the vegetation at the side of a path, plenty of Migrant Hawkers, as well as countless Common Darters and the occasional Ruddy Darter.
