July 1st 2011

After coffee and cake at the Just So Dave and I had walk around the Bridge Nursery garden (well worth looking at for ideas) and found 3 Grass Snakes, Common Blue Damselfly, Blue-tailed Damselfly, Black-tailed Skimmer and a few Udea lutealis.
Napton on the Hill churchyard was again quiet with only Buzzard, Goldcrest, Long-tailed Tit seen and Spotted Flycatcher, Chiffchaff and Raven heard. Butterflies were 2 Red Admiral, 4 Green-veined White, Large Skipper plus many Ringlet and Meadow Brown

Took advantage of the world stopping for tennis with a peaceful walk along Ashlawn Cutting late afternoon with still a few butterflies around with Large Skipper, Small Skipper, Red Admiral, Meadow Brown and Ringlet while moths included Cinnabar, Carcina quercana, Bee Moth, White Plume Moth and Treble-bar Moth. Birds seen were Red-legged partridge, Buzzard, Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Linnet and Green Woodpecker.

Still playing catch up with photos from bob with the latest batch containing some of our smaller moths.
