Red & White

Sunny spells, showers, 18º, breezy SSW.

A variable weather day, quite warm in the sun but cooler in the wind and shade, fewer insects around.

The hill was relatively quiet, surprisingly the Redstart was still there with 2 Common Whitethroat, also 4 Chiffchaff,  a few Linnet and Yellowhammer, 3 Kestrel, 2 Buzzard and a Red Kite.

A couple of hirundine flocks passed over struggling in to the headwind totalling c40 House Martin and c10 Swallow.

Dragonflies; 3 Common Darter and 1 Southern Hawker.

Butterflies; several Small White, Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood, 1 Large White, 1 Comma, 1 Red Admiral.
