Buddleia Magic!


This morning two Turtle Doves again put in an appearance at Harrington Airfield.

Without wishing to seem lazy, it was a day when the wildlife came to us in and around our garden at Hanging Houghton. The last few days have seen our buddleia bushes heaving with butterflies and today was no exception with large numbers of Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock and smaller numbers of Red Admiral, Comma etc. The Silver Y moths then take over in the evening.

Birds in or from the garden today included two Ravens, a Grey Wagtail, and a Spotted Flycatcher, plus a Marsh Tit and two Nuthatch coming to the sunflower heart feeder.

Brown Hares.  The fields between the
Scaldwell and Walgrave Bays at
Pitsford Reservoir are normally good
 for this super mammal.
