Spring butterflies at an end…

A dry and warm spring when the flower at Grafton have looked great now we go into a quiet stage before the summer flowers and butterflies start.  The Butterfly Transect is now showing low number.  To compensate the Bird count of migrants has been good 22 Chiffchaff, 17 Blackcaps, 13 Garden Warblers and regular Cuckoo.  The regeneration in conifer plots has attracted Common and Lesser Whitethroats.

The first Dragonfly arrived this week a Broad-bodied Chaser.
