Butterflies rule

Cloudy and warm, a muggy day, 22°, light NNW.

Much the same as yesterday but plenty of butterflies around today.

Lots of Red Kite around (30+) and a few Buzzard in the air probably due to several nearby fields being cut for silage.

2 Hobby seen mobbing a couple of Red Kite and around 5 Kestrel in the vicinity. A Pied Wagtail flew over, the first there since early June.

Around a 100 Swift high over the hill slowly drifting south, could not see most of them without binoculars.

The Spotted Flycatcher still around today (per MP).

Mammals: Bank Vole, Brown Hare.

Dragonflies: Azure Damselfly, Emperor, 4-spot Chaser.

Butterflies: Small Skipper, Essex Skipper, Large Skipper, Large White, Small White, Common Blue, Brown Argus, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Comma, Speckled Wood, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown and Ringlet.
