Had an excellent lunch break on thursday. With the gorgeous sun shining high in the sky it brought the Butterflies out en masse. Seven different species were seen including my first Speckled Woods of the year. The others were Large White, Small White, Green Veined, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock and Orange Tip. A good number of birds were around as well with 3 Chiffchaffs being joined by my first Blackcap of the year.
