After a morning scything the picnic site on the Windrush path with the LWVP volunteers on 14 May I spent a couple of hours enjoying the spectacle of (about – they’re hard to count!) eight Hobbies hawking along the shore of ‘Pit 60’ at Standlake, some flying right up to and around the windows of the hides. Heaven knows what they found to eat because there didn’t seem to be many insects about. There was also a good show of Orchids, probably Green Winged, in the Langley’s Lane meadow SSSI. However, because there’s no public access my ID was through binoculars and is a bit of a guess.
