Emer Bog is a small nature Reserve just outside of southampton. It is not that easy to find . It was rather dull and overcast but it was a pleasant walk and part of it is on a new boardwalk over the bog. We saw quite a few gatekeepers and skippers and we could hear the constant chirping of crickets and grasshoppers. A ruddy darter posed for us on some old silver birch logs. We caught a brief glimpse of a Red Admiral.
