What weather!

Hello

Strong winds again and increasingly heavy rain didn't make it a great day outside, but there are things to do out there!

Neil H saw a pair of Smew and a Goosander in the Holcot Bay at Pitsford Res, the only birds I saw of any note there was a single Little Egret and a Grey Wagtail.

Constructing some seed feeders at Scotland Wood (probably in a failed effort at outwitting the local Grey Squirrels) and finishing off checking the nest-boxes was sufficient to see two Woodcock.

Below are some images of British butterflies kindly supplied by Simon Hales, just to remind us that sunnier and warmer days are ahead of us (honest)!

Regards
