Week 23

A better week with the weather sunnier days now but the wind still remains keeping many insects down. The birds have been quieter on the species count.

Around the bird feeder this week has been Blue Tit, Great Tit, Goldcrest, Robin, Blackbird,  and Dunnock. Out in the woods Chiffchaff and a count of 3 singing Blackcaps this week.

Hoverflies have been scarce this week, Butterflies been represented by Green veined White and Orange tips most days with a single Speckled Wood seen mid week along with 2 male Brimstones flying thru.

It was also good this week to find a couple of Moth species, theses being Yellow Barred Longhorn Moth and Silver Ground Carpet
