As many of us are into butterflies we discussed various sites in Hertfordshire and beyond, apparently Chalkhill Blues and Silver Washed Fritillaries are on the wing at the moment, so I will have to see what I can do next week.
The only birds of note were Common Sandpiper and a Little Ring Plover. Two Teal were among the moulting ducks, and Coot and Lapwing numbers were very high. After the frequent showers there were small flocks of House and Sand Martin over the water, as well as some Swifts and Swallows. Hobby seems to be scarce this year, and only one seems to be present at the moment.
