20th May

Very quiet for birds. A Spotted Flycatcher and a Yellow Wagtail were virtually the only migrants on the land and the Iceland Gull was still at the Patch.

Insects provided some more excitement with a male Red-veined Darter Sympetrum fonscolombii seen briefly in the Desert, at least ten Brassica Bugs in the moat, three Grizzled Skippers and two Tree Bumblebees Bombus hypnorum in the Observatory Garden.
