Just after lunch I received a call of the mechanic saying that my motor was ready to collect. After picking it up I headed straight to the patch, to undertake a much needed walk around Stanklyn Lane.
On walking down the lane towards the entrance I picked up a family party of Garden Warblers flitting about and contact calling in the hedgerow. This was a great sight as there were 3 juveniles present.
In the gallops field I soon picked up the ♂ Whinchat that was still present. The bird is now looking quite scruffy as it advances through it's moult.
The conditions weren't great today and the wind was really blowing some, so it wasn't great for invertebrates and even worse for photography. I did however record the following species of butterfly: Essex Skipper, Holly Blue, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, Small Tortoiseshell, Large White and Small White. Small numbers of Six-spot Burnett moth were also noted.
