I overslept which buggered my plans to go down the south coast so gave Ashlawn Cutting a good look managing Garden Warbler, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Great-spotted woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Treecreeper and Long-tailed Tit . A Spotted Flycatcher was in the adjacent grounds of Rugby Schools Polo Field.
The stunning weather brought out the butterflies with, 7 Large Skipper, 14 Common Blue, Red Admiral, 4 Marbled White, 5 Ringlet, 4 Speckled Wood, 2 Meadow Brown and Large White. A good search for the extinct Forester Moth (just in case it is not) produced Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnet, Phlyctaenia coronata, Udea olivalis, 2 Blackneck, 3 Cinnabar, 4 Straw Dot, 2 Burnet Companion and Celypha rosaceana moths while Blue-tailed Damselfly, Common Blue Damselfly’s and Southern Hawker also recorded. Both Nuthatch and Treecreeper were seen along Ashlawn Road on the way home while a Hobby was over my estate.
