Montpelier Park

Half an hour in the park this morning produced a pair of Blackcaps, a Coal Tit, a Woodpigeon and a Blackbird carrying a beakful of worms so no doubt feeding young. At least 1 Grey Squirrel was seen.

Insects in the park included a Bee Fly, a Syrphus hoverfly, a Common Carder Bee, and my first Small White butterfly of the year. There was also a tantalising glimpse of what I think was a Red Mason Bee - the only photo I was able to take was a poor one as it didn't hang about.

Syrphus hoverfly

There was a Speckled Wood butterfly in Station Road and the station itself produced another Syrphus hoverfly and a Green-veined White butterfly. A Blackcap was also singing.
