The rest of the afternoon visit was spent around Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Complex, again hoping for a 'drop in' migrant, and again getting a negative result, it is quite early yet though so I wont get too despondent! I spent a while doing a bit of Sky watching from my seat, the first Swallow is due any day now, if I had of found one today it would have been the earliest patch record by two days, but I didn't, tomorrow maybe! I did see a low flying BUZZARD though, always great to watch as they soar up and away.
It was a bit disappointing not to see any Butterflies, it certainly felt warm enough, but they will come, patience is the word...............
Only the regulars were photographed today, but some pleasing shots were obtained :-)
