|Male Ring Ouzel|
I enjoyed walking some parts of my local patch that are a little quieter and provide some habitat that could yield something interesting in the coming months ( I was 90% sure I had distant views of a 'goody' on Sunday, but need to revisit and get better views first, so watch this space !). Chiffchaff numbers on the patch increased and one or two have obliged for a quick pic.
The warm weather has provided an opportunity for a few more butterfly shots, especially the obliging Peacocks, but the butterfly highlight for me so far this year was a fly-by male Brimstone that got me all excited as it flew past me along a woodland ride. I've also connected with a couple of male Orange Tips, but they were viewed through my bins, busily charging around and refusing to come near enough for photo's.
Finally this week some Bluebells appeared on the patch, and now we are told to expect snow !!
