Summer Leys was situation normal this morning. The 7 Shelducklings are doing well and catching up with there parents in size. There are probably 3 baby Redshank still, now becoming more obviously Redshank as their plumage begins to change.
The pair of Garganey are still present, although they have relocated to Mary's Lake. Three new broods of Lapwings have appeared this week on the scrape. The Med Gull was seen yesterday, but still hasn't any young, the odds on a successful incubation are becoming longer daily.
Finally a Ringed Plover and a Dunlin were on Round Island this morning.
On Thursday I visited Glapthorn Cow Pasture to look for Black Hairstreak's. Several butterflies were seen in and around the tops of the blackthorn, although none dropped down to feed on the bramble whilst I was there.
