Wednesday 23rd April

A quick 45 minute visit between 4.30 and 5.15 today, I was hoping for some butterflies as the weather had brightened up after a dull and misty day. All I saw was a distant 'white' - probably a female Orange Tip but too distant to be sure.

I saw my first Common Lizard of the year as well as 3 Slow Worm and 2 Newt Efts.

Common Lizard

Bird-wise a singing Goldcrest in the West Srub was a a suprise, 5 singing Nightingale, 4 Whitethroat, 1 Sedge Warbler, 2 Green Woodpecker, 5 Willow Warbler, 1 Cettis, 2 Mistle Thrush, 1 Chiffchaff across the East and West scrub (which was as far as I got in the time!)
