I walk along Brook Furlong Lane to Marsh Farm and saw a Common Darter and Migrant Hawker dragonflies. The Butterflies were out in number with Small Tortoiseshell, White’s, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown, Peacock and Comma but no Painted Ladies?
There were Common Buzzard, Kestrel and Eurasian Sparrowhawk noted. The pipes across No.1 tank had 2 female Northern Wheatear with Raven and European Goldfinch were about.
Not a bad afternoon and the only remaining Cleg fly bit me.
