Amonst the heather at Roydon Common

17 Aug 2017

Another new location visited in August was the delightful Roydon Common near Kings Lynn, a reserve managed by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust as part of the Gaywood Valley Living Landscape.


On a lovely sunny day the heather was in bloom and dragonflies and butterflies were everywhere. At least 15 species of dragonfly frequently occur at Roydon, including the rare black darter, for which this is one of only two breeding sites in Norfolk. We found a lovely quiet area to observe and photograph these along with a few of more than 30 species of butterfly which also occur here.


All photos taken with a Panasonic G80 and the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm lens.
