These photos were taken on the 9th June on a very lovely day, the sun was shining and I got to see my first Skipper of the year (not seen one since)
I just wandered round the park and took photos of flowers , insects and birds as I came across them.
Not sure what Bumblebee this was very large and a stripy bottom, could be a
common carder bumblebee .
It's wings seem very small for such a big Bee.
There was some Mallard ducklings out having a preen in the sunshine.
You might remember we lost the male Swan last month, mum managed to raise two lovely signets .

On Kirk Lane Park next to Nunroyd the rose bed is at it's best, and the roses smelled lovely.
On the way out of the park there is a electric box! plot of land .
The fox and cubs wildflower (Pilosella aurantiaca) thrives on the gravel. Sadly they oven cut them down, but they manage to grow back every year.
