Hickling NWT

Last weekend I did a trip to Hickling Broad NWT Reserve with my cousins Garth and Ross.  Amazingly we managed to see some ten or so Swallowtail butterflies.  It would seem that we missed getting prolonged views of them feeding in the open on Hawthorn blossom as that has gone over now.  While we were walking back though a single butterfly settled a short distance into the reedbed and remained settled for some 20minutes as a bank of cloud came over.  This was ideal, allowing me to get some sketches of the wing pattern through my bins.  Ideally though I could have spent all day there just taking in every detail of these amazing butterflies!  Something for another day... 
Also no Norfolk Hawkers were seen.
