I was more successful with the Butterflies and Damselflies than the Buzzard though, although i'm sure one will soar over my patch at some point this month. Whilst in the Tree Nursery I checked up on the WHITETHROAT nest site, and it seems that the young have fledged, one adult was seen with a large caterpillar in its beak, no doubt the young are in the hedgerow somewhere.
I manged to kick up a few butterflies, Common Blue were most the numerous, with 4 being seen, and a nice Small Copper also showed itself today, the Silver 'y' moths continue to be seen in good numbers too.
Birds sightings were limited to the very common species, but a CUCKOO was heard to call, one of the last days that i'll hear one this year ?
I managed to get a few photo's, but it was difficult getting a sharp photo in the wind, below is a DUNNOCK.
Above is a Common Blue ( I never tire of photographing these) and below is the Small Copper
The Damselfly below is a Common Blue Damselfly, there were quite a few of these in the long grass of the Tree Nursery
I took some more Garden Bird photo's when I got home, but the light had gone by then. Below is the ROBIN
........and lastly a GREENFINCH, with a GOLDFINCH in the background. The birds are really staring to come back to the feeders big time, i'm getting through 4 kg of sunflower hearts a day now. I saw a JAY in the garden this evening, the first one this year, taking the Garden Bird feeder year list to 28.
