Today I had a wander up to the head of Fontburn reservoir. I specifically was hoping to spot a Sundew in one of a number of locations where I knew another flycatcher, Butterwort existed.
Quite a few Butterwort were seen
but no Sundews were spotted.
There were however good numbers of flowering Grass of Parnassus
a couple of Painted Lady
and a few Peacock.

I was fortunate to be able to watch a Kingfisher hovering over the water before striking. With the water levels really low there were no perches above the water to act as a perch.
Jay and Mistle Thrush were about further up the Fallowlees Burn valley
