19 bird species were seen and records of them were loaded to BirdTrack (http://www.bto.org/volunteer-surveys/birdtrack). There were no species of great note seen during this visit; though, I did get some close views of a ♀ Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) collecting nest lining material. I also recorded on my Blackberry a ♂ Blackbird (Turdus merula) in full song with a Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita) providing the backing track!
Just 2 Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria) were noted. I did obtain this nice photograph of the first of them.
A single Hornet (Vespa crabro) was on the wing, plus I photographed the following moth species.
I think this is a Cream Wave (Scopula floslactata); however, I will ask the iSpot (http://www.ispot.org.uk/frontpage) community to confirm that.
I took the following pictures:
One of the Brambles (Rubus fruticosus agg.)
Spindle (Euonymus europaeus)
