Week 11

Another glorious week with plenty of sunshine and warm weather, but the mornings are still giving us those freezing temps to start the day.

Well the birds were quiet this week with the highlight being a pair of Treecreepers, hopefully these will breed again. Other birds were Blue Tits, Robin and Wrens in the woods, but it was the return of insects that got the attention this week with plenty of Comma Butterflies on the wing, seen most days, with a few Small tortoiseshell thrown in, bumblebees a plenty, and the first Moth of the new season in the shape of a Dotted Border.

Next week is week 12 a good week for returning migrants lets see if they are que this year unlike last years week 16
