We had a walk round Loch Ardinning reserve this morning.
Turned out warm, still and clear despite the forecast.
Grass drying from the rain, sparkling.
Fair number of butterflies around, Small Tortoiseshells, Ringlets, some Whites and a lot of Painted Ladies. One or two others I didn’t ID, including a duller red/brown one.
Plenty of blue damselflies and some small red dragonflies.
Saw one wee lizard wriggling away through the grass and one on the wall. The latter looked as if it was regrowing its tail.
