A Lesser Whitethroat was still singing in the BW sector, where a Whitethroat, four Chiffchaffs, two Blackcaps and three Bullfinches were noted, along with a juvenile Song Thrush.
The weather wasn't ideal for butterflies but those recorded included an Essex Skipper, a Large Skipper and six Marbled Whites in BW and a further three Marbled Whites at CF.
It is worth noting that it has come to light that the White-letter Hairstreaks were first seen last year. The area to search for them is immediately west of the orchard by Park Farm.
