June 30th 2011

Draycote Water had a little bit of bird activity.
Two adult Little Ringed Plovers and a juvenile may have bred here as they have been present though elusive at times since the spring. A Little Egret flew in to toft bay but did not stay long while other highlights included 3 adult Yellow-legged Gull, 3 Common Tern, 6 Buzzard, 12 Long-tailed Tit, 7 Whitethroat, 3 Garden Warbler, 4 Teal and our second breeding pair of Treecreeper produced five young.
The weather started off good for butterflies but clouded over but we still managed 150+ Ringlet, 100+ Meadow brown, Comma, 2 Marbled White, 2 Green-veined White, 6 Large White, Small White, Large Skipper and 6 Small Tortishell.
Single Ghost Moth in the trap last night.
