|A view through the heart of Migrant Alley - no migrants here today though|
Everything else noted was the same as yesterday, flyovers from the three Gull species, LESSER BLACK BACKED, HERRING and BLACK HEADED as well as GREY HERON, YELLOWHAMMER and HOUSE MARTIN all helped the list along, as did the three other Raptor species seen - SPARROWHAWK, BUZZARD and KESTREL, the family of which continue to show at the Greenhouse Grounds, where once again the immature GREY WAGTAIL was seen. Over 100 GEESE were again seen at Migrant Alley 90% were GREYLAGS, with the rest being CANADA'S.
|I cant resist photographing the Kestrels when they sit on the Greenhouse!|
As yesterday, I spent some time at the greenhouses early this afternoon photographing the Butterflies, where I found Large and Small Whites, Large and Small Skippers, Meadow Brown, Gate Keeper, Red Admiral, Peacock, Small tortoiseshell, Small Copper, Common Blue and Comma.
|This is just the second Common Blue Butterfly on my patch this year|
|I found a newer Small Copper than yesterdays specimen|
|Good job it perched low down, as the wind today made for difficult photography|
