Clouded Yellow

Overcast, murky with almost constant fine rain, 21°, light SSW.

Both Redstart still present on the hill today but rather elusive.

Approx. 200 Swift flew south in an hour during light rain between 12:00 and 13:00 and when the rain stopped so did the Swifts!

Several Lesser Blackback Gull and Black-headed Gull flew over and 5 Mistle Thrush nearby and a Kingfisher flew towards Amwell Spring.

C50 Black-headed Gull briefly in the Rec and a Mistle Thrush in the playing field and a Hobby over the Rec.

Dragonflies: Southern Hawker.

Butterflies: First Clouded Yellow of the year, fewer than of late, Small Skipper, Large Skipper, Large White, Small White, Common Blue, Holly Blue, Red Admiral, Peacock, Gatekeeper and Meadow Brown.
