My objective had been to photograph birds at the Furze, but there is just too much cover at this time of year. I could hear several clearly, but see nothing. After an hour or two of frustration, I changed lenses and switched to photographing insects, which were much more obliging.

I also saw Brimestone and Marbled White, but didn't get photos of these. Despite the long dry period, the recent rain bought forth one mushroom:
