Wildlife sightings in the Montpelier, St Andrews, St Werburghs and St Pauls areas of Bristol, UK
Saturday, 13 October 2012
Birds noted while bashing brambles on the reserve this morning: 4 Jackdaws, a party of Great and Blue Tits, fly-over Greenfinch, Chaffinch and Goldfinch. A Harvestman species was also noted.
At Fairlawn Road there were about 10 Green Shieldbugs, a Phaonia sp fly, a Dark Bush-cricket and a Dock Leaf Bug. A Pied Wagtail flew over.
At the station there was a Common Darter dragonfly basking near the footbridge - I think this is my first ever for Montpelier. Also 7 Large White butterflies and an Eristalis hoverfly plus a Grey Squirrel.
