Same as yesterday...Well nearly.

Another warm and sunny day, 21º, fresher SSW.

Same as yesterday....but. The 4th record this year of a Clouded Yellow butterfly on the hill, too flighty to get a pic but looked fresh and bright.

When I arrived there were 4 Buzzard resting on the hill, they immediately flew off, caught the breeze and drifted off to the north, recognised as a local family group.

Every Red Kite double checked today as there was a possible Black Kite seen at Port Meadow, Oxford earlier today but alas no luck.

Still the same 2 Wheatear present and a Kingfisher, Grey Heron and a Grey Wagtail and a single Jay nearby. (ref;Jays, there has been a movement of Jays also east of Oxford & Dorset noted this week).

Dragonflies; several Common Darter.

Butterflies; several Small White, 6 Red Admiral, 2 Peacock, 1 Large White, 2 Small Tortoiseshell, 1 Speckled Wood and a Clouded Yellow.


You got it!
