On 30 July 2016, to Gooilust nature reserve again. Where we saw this painted lady butterfly on a butterfly-bush flower in the garden.
Before the garden, near the Gooilust entrance, we heard a young buzzard, presumably still a nestling, call.
A male buzzard, presumably its father, flying, then sitting down on a tree. Then, that buzzard flew to the ground, catching, probably, a rodent. While in flight, he transferred his prey to his female mate. Who then flew to the nest. The youngster’s calls turned to silence, presumably because it was feeding.
Then, we continued to the Gooilust garden. Many butterflies: small whites; map butterflies. Red admirals. Peacock butterflies.
Also, various bumblebee species.
Many beautiful dahlia flowers.
Of various colours, including white.
We left Gooilust, passing the Corversbos fields.
