Friday May 2nd

A cool day today, but bright and sunny by early afternoon. A Holly Blue was active in the garden, whilst a Shag was roosting on the cliffs about 5pm. Plants new in flower for me included the Musk Storksbill found by Adrian and both Beaked and Smooth Hawksbeard, now flowering in several places along the coastline and lots of the unidentified white 'Hunstanton' Stock growing on the cliff face below the lighthouse. A belated identification too, courtesy of the the pan -species listers,  for the sawfly Robert and I found on the iris in the NOA pond......Iris Sawfly. As Robert said, who'd have thought ?
