On the nature reserve today - 1 Sparrowhawk, a few Long-tailed Tits, a Blue Tit with nesting material, lots of Robins and Wrens, 2 Common Buzzards over the cutting, 4 Jays, 4 Chiffchaffs, 3 Blackcaps, 2 Coal Tits and lots of hot Raven action.



Butterflies were represented by 1 Holly Blue, 1 Peacock and 3 Speckled Woods. My highlight was my first ever Hairy-footed Flower Bee (brief view, distant shot) also plenty of Common Carder Bees and Syrphus hoverfles.
