The KESTREL pair were both hunting around the Ashes Lane Field, at one point the male arrowed in and dived upon a JACKDAW, a quick fight ensued and the two parted with no harm done :-) The blue sky encouraged the local pair of BUZZARDS (55) to soar on the thermals above the Wet Woods, the final species to join the May list was the LESSER WHITETHROAT (56), it gave two burst of song from the Greenhouse Grounds late in the morning.
A few Butterflies were on the wing, but nothing new for the year, SMALL WHITE, LARGE WHITE, GREEN VEINED WHITE, SMALL TORTOISESHELL, ORANGE TIP and the PEACOCK at the top of the page were all seen.
|This COMMON WHITETHROAT preferred to sing from the Greenhouse Roof|
|Its song was amplified by the surrounding glass buildings|
|This Jackdaw was at my Garden Feeders this afternoon|
|As was this territorial MAGPIE, which chased everything off every ten minutes!|
