Sunday

Quite a nice morning,with it being about 17ºC early morning.

This must have been the lowest amount of moths at the Wardens Office, since I’ve been checking.

With hardly any moths, decided to check Mere Farm Pools. Down Mere Lane, there were a family of Pheasants all enjoying the early morning sun. I would guess they were trying to dry off, from yesterday’s heavy rain. There was young and an adult female, all on different levels of the farmers gate. I now regret not taking the whole gate, with all of them on it…

There is still a male Common Redstart on the Main Common. I only got distant record photos. Two of them with a Willow Warbler…

Both me and Ken, thought we saw 3 White-letter Hairstreaks today. But all were fast flying and high up. So we are hoping for good weather tomorrow morning!
