Butterfly firsts for the year

A sunny day, 20°, light E.

Butterfly information from Tony Rayner: “a Dingy Skipper and a Green Hairstreak – both firsts for the year and a good count of 26 Small Copper, a record count by some distance.

Others include, Orange Tip, Common Blue and Holly Blue, all in Tony’s meadow.”

This female Great-spotted Woodpecker is visiting the garden on a regular basis and maybe nesting nearby.
A Starling (one of a pair) visits the garden regularly on its way to collect food for young and again nesting nearby.
