|The fence infront is stopping people get too near last years Hornets nest!|
|I thought the geese were going to stay as they didn't fly until I turned to leave.|
I continued through the wood and heard my first Redpoll of the month go over. There was a sudden burst of noise as a Sparrowhawk circled over for a few seconds and then a Chiffchaff called but once again didn't sing!! Although a Goldcrest more than made up for the lack of Chiffchaff song, with a non-stop rendition of his favourite tune. Other birds included, Bullfinch, Grey Heron, Linnet, 3 Yellowhammers singing and a Treecreeper. Later speaking to Dad he reported he had seen 4 Brimstone butterflies and Steve Broyd was watching at least 5 of the day flying Orange Underwing moths when I spoke to him at lunchtime, my visits are normally too early or too late to catch up with these insects regularly, hopefully I'll get a chance at the weekend.
