Painted Lady


Just time for one circuit of one 'top field' this evening. The highlight was 2 immigrant painted lady butterflies - the first I've seen this year. Bird wise there were 4+ stock dove and a couple swift over. Offshore there were 40+ sandwich tern
Yesterday I did a 20 minute sea watch from the raised beach huts, from 0600 - 0620. Best bird was a single roseate tern with 2 common tern and 3 manx shearwater,  feeding with a number of kittiwake and gannet. Late Sunday evening, after my last post, I saw the first-summer little gull roosting with a large concentration of black-headed gulls off Mudbank.
