Tophill Low visit

Just a quick one, as it was not an amazingly interesting visit to Tophill Low. The highlights, quite close Grey Herons in North Lagoon and Helmpholme Meadows, where managed to have the camera switched off as the heron got a little fish. In North Marsh I only had a fleeting view of a kingfisher. Lots of Speckled Woods about and a single Painted Lady. It became quite cloudy as the morning advanced and the butterflies disappeared. There were some hawkers and darter dragonflies about, but, although pretty sure there was a Brown Hawker patrolling in North Marsh, I didn't manage any photos.

Malayan tapirs? No, just belted Galloway cattle, grazing Helmphome Meadows, a great sight.
