No birds

A distant Peregrine at Shibdon was the only bird of note today, so it was down to butterflies and dragons to fill in the day.

At Kibblesworth Brick Works Common Darter and Ringlet were new for the year. Also here were Four-spotted Chaser, Common Blue and Blue-tailed Damsel, Meadow Brown, Large Skipper and Small Heath.

This evening a trip to Shibdon gave a single spike of Bee Orchid. Still a few butterflies enjoying the sun with Ringlet, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown, Large Skipper, Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock.
