Friday 2nd July 2010 - Wyre Forest

This afternoon I went for a walk around the Wyre forest, in the Knowles Coppice & dis-used railway line area. As with most places this time of year, the birding was pretty uneventful with the highlights being 3 Juvenile Grey Wagtails along Dowles Brook and seeing juveniles of both Treecreeper and Nuthatch.

The butterflies were the main reason for this amble and I wasn't disappointed. The stars of the day were 2 ♂ Silver-washed Fritillaries that I saw along the disused railway. Also seen were 3 Small Skippers, 5 Large Skippers, 10 Speckled Wood, 1 Large White, 1 Small Tortoiseshell and too many Ringlets to actually count!
