Yesterday's Whitethroat reappeared and sang early a.m. and at midday from the middle of the back garden - I failed to get a pic though. The first Yellowhammers have fledged and one spent the afternoon in the backgarden - new movie -. Blackcap was singing across the road.
There were a stack of Painted Lady again, up to 20 at one time, Red Admiral, Brimstone, Wall, Small Tortoiseshell (2) and the usual whites. Small Copper up on the moor again but not around the garden. 7-spot ladybirds around, 5 or so adults and this larva (above) (click on the image for big).
At the dale head lateish afternoon not much was in evidence except a bunch of juvvy Stonechats, only 1 Whinchat and a single Tree Pipit.
