Had today off with the intention of working in the garden, but a headache put me off doing much so I went for a walk around Aston End this morning instead.
Very warm, sunny and humid and not much bird life. Plenty of Skylarks singing, and five Meadow Pipits flew north up the Beane valley. Pairs of Red Legged and Grey Partridge encountered.
Got a few butterflies on the walk, two Peacock, two Small Tortoiseshell and single Comma and Red Admiral. All I needed to complete the overwintering set would be Brimstone which I got in the garden when I arrived back home.
