So I decided to have a walk at Winterton North Dunes to see how the breeding Stonechats were getting on.
Unfortunately the bird life was pretty sparse with only 2 Yellowhammer singing, the pair of Stonechats doing nothing, several young Chiffs and a vocal Green Woodpecker being all I could muster.
However the Butterflies and Dragonflies made up for this with a superb Dark Green Fritillary being the highlight.
