Late Insects

Clear and sunny with a frosty start, 8°, light SSW.

A quiet day out at Lollingdon, very little on the way out, in fact the garden has been busier today.

Approx. 100 Fieldfare around the hill, plus c30 Redwing, 20 Blackbird, 5 Mistle Thrush and c60 Starling.

A Sparrowhawk unsuccessfully hunting Thrushes and a Green Woodpecker also present.

Getting late in the year for large insects, however:

Dragonflies: 2 Common Darter.

Butterflies: 5 Red Admiral, 1 Peacock and 1 Comma.
