Butterflies & Worms

Sunny, 12°, light N.

My first butterflies of the year today - a Brimstone and a Small Tortoiseshell in the garden this afternoon. Also 4 Slow-worms under the sheets.

Along the Agatha Christie Trail today, two male Reed Buntings and crossing Green Lane on the way back to Wallingford Road - a couple of Roe Deer (per The EastEnder).

A roost near Westfield road found recently with at least 30 Chaffinch there last night and sometimes there are Corn Bunting, one two flocks about 20 in each dive in as well (per Ben Hobbs).
