A miscalculation with the weather today, thought I would get back by 14:00 when the rain was expected and did not check my weather app this morning. So a lightweight jacket and boots were not sufficient when I got caught in the open with rain and hail. However during the sunny spells at least I could dry off.
Not a lot going on out there today either. A few more Common Whitethroat around and on territory. A Sparrowhawk over the hill and another seen over West End.
At least 2 House Martin in a flock of Hirundines also over West End.
Both Mistle Thrush and Song Thrush seen collecting food in the meadow today so presumably have young in a nest nearby.
Butterflies: Brimstone, Orange Tip, Small White, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock and Speckled Wood (first of the year).
Orange Tip. Just about the only thing that stayed still in the breezy conditions.
