Next Generation

A cloudy start and then warming up, 24°, light NE.

Another sunny day after the initial cloud cleared.

A family of Swallows still around to the south of the railway with the next generation perched up and waiting to be fed.

Little OwlKestrel and Sparrowhawk seen and a Lesser Whitethroat heard again.

No change around the Hill with all the regulars still present and a few more young birds being noted.

A Song Thrush back visiting the garden after a brief absence and a young Moorhen in the garden accompanied by a parent bird.

Reptiles: several Common Lizard.

Dragonflies: Banded Demoiselle, Southern Hawker and Emperor Dragonfly.

Butterflies: Large White, Small White, Common Blue, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Comma, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown and Ringlet.

Moths: Scarlet Tiger.
