Spot Fly

Overcast, 18°, a few light rain showers, light W.

The first Spotted Flycatcher seen this year in the village by Michael Pocock this morning, a possibility they are breeding nearby hopefully or just a wandering individual.

Years ago there could be 5 to 6 pairs breeding in the village but nowadays they are very hard to find if at all.

A couple of hours around the hill today, 50+ Swift and 5 Swallow over heading south west, 2 Lesser Blackback Gull west and a Hobby drifted over.

Whitethroat, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Yellowhammer, Corn Bunting and Skylark heard in occasional song.

A Nuthatch has become a daily visitor to the feeders in the garden now.

Mammals: Bank Vole, Roe Deer.

Dragonflies: Emperor Dragonfly.

Butterflies: Small Skipper, Large White, Small White, Small Tortoiseshell, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown and Ringlet.
