Recently seen at Cromwell Bottom

The Butterfly's are: Small Copper, Male and female orange tip and Speckled Wood.  Red Damsel Flys. Alder Fly. Crane Fly. There are two types of Hover fly. (On willow catkin in pond and Dandelion) Helophilus pendulus and Syrphus ribesii. The flowers are Birdsfoot Trefoil and Yellow Rattle. 

The Bee could be a Tree Bumble Bee but I'm not sure if I took that on the reserve. I have put in the shot I took of the dipper flying along behind the weir. (taken on Bank holiday Monday. ) I think they are now feeding young as I saw both of them out feeding on Sat Morning and taking food in.
