5th June

A bright and sunny day at last although the wintry theme actually continued with the unusual bird of the day in the form of a Fieldfare in the trapping area. A Buzzard and a Grey Wagtail also flew over.

With the better weather a few butterflies were also on the wing and included a Holly Blue at the Sycamore in the trapping area and a Painted Lady. The moth trap produced lots of Diamond-back Moths again and the first Toadflax Brocade of the year. The best of the few dragonflies seen was a Variable Damselfly in the trapping area.
