Raptors and Butterflies

Cloudy with a few sunny spells, 20°, breezy WSW.

Again a bit breezy on the hill with very few small passerines evident.

5 or 6 Kestrel around the hill, 20+ Red Kite, 6 Buzzard, a Hobby flew rather fast south, a Peregrine flew towards the village and a Sparrowhawk went west.

A couple of hundred Rook with 30+ Jackdaw on one of the ploughed fields and around 20 Lesser Blackback Gull.

A handful of Swift and Swallow over the hill moving south and a couple of Little Owl calling nearby.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Large White, Small White, Holly Blue, Common Blue, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock, Comma, Speckled Wood, Gatekeeper and Meadow Brown.
