Nature Notes # 31 (Frogsporn)
Sparky and myself took advantage of the fine weather on our ramble up, over and through Delamere Forest today. Spring has truly sprung with the birds, Bees and Amphibians doing what needs to be done to set the seed for the next generation.
The warm weather brought out a plethora of butterflies and most notable were Peacocks, Small Tortoiseshell, 5 Brimstone, 2 Comma and a single Orangetip.
A pair of Mandarin were settled on a small pool at the metal road to Pale Heights. Two separate sightings of singing Blackcap, Chiffchaff were vocal throughout the forest as were Siskin and a small party of Crossbill flew over.
Observers: Sparky, WSM .
