Danbury area

Today went to my Danbury to see my dad and had a nice walk around the Common in the morning hopping to see one of the elusive reptiles espically the adder but no luck with them but had plenty of wildlife to make up for it with lots of  Whitethroats and Wrens singing and 1 Nightingale briefing singing in the woodland and lots of butterflies with a fresh Comma and lots of Meadow Brown, Ringlets , Large Skipper and quite a few Small Skippers and my first Purple Hairsteak of the year a nice bonus.

In the afternoon had a pleasant walk around Heybridge Basin with Avocets breeding in small numbers though only 1 chick visable, few Redshanks, Sheldducks, Oystercatcher, Lapwing and Gull around the seafront and on the fields around had Yellowhammer, Reed Bunting and Linnet singing around the hedges a lovely place for a nice summer walk.
