A nice specimen of the Painted Lady turned up in front of me.
This male Chaffinch was singing away in a tree next to a bridge.
I am sure there is a female on a nest nearby as I have observed them both here recently.
The Maize crop continues to grow. It is very quick growing and this makes it attractive to use.
The beautiful Knapweed flower.
The Norfolk Hawker Dragonfly head on.

More recently I have noticed that Farmers are growing Barley and Wheat cereal mixed together in the same field. This is new to me and I have not seen it before.
I discovered that recent research has shown that sowing the two grain crops together increases resilience to disease and productivity of both rather than growing them separately. One piece of research showed that there was an increase of 20% more wheat and 11% more Barley. It is not new however and has been around in some parts of the World for 3000 years and was termed 'Maslin' Crops.
