I got out at around 14:00hrs this afternoon, just as it was clouding over - grrrrr.. , but it was still bright and warm. The birdlife was very subdued, not unusual for a June afternoon. I spent most of the two hours I was out walking the perimeter of the Tree Nursery, both WHITETHROAT and CHAFFINCH were feeding youngsters, the odd DUNNOCK, ROBIN, BLACKBIRD and SONGTHRUSH scurried around under the Laurel shrubs as I tried to find some butterfly species.
I managed to find a few damsels as well as Butterflies, here are a few photo's of my afternoons work, better enjoyed by enlarging the pics.
Below is a Burnet Moth, I can count five spots on each wing, so it must be a Five Spot Burnet Moth right ?
Below is a spanking fresh Meadow Brown Butterfly, must have emerged today
