A small group came out for this site in Sheppey on 24th June. It is a planted woodland and amenity land adjacent to a housing estate. The large pond was nearly dry due to the heatwave, but provided an interesting location to observe courtship behaviour of some long-legged flies. Beyond the trees, the site changes into scrubland and some patches of meadow, in which we spotted a few orchids, various bumblebee species and numerous Cinnabar moths!
