Got out yesterday and today , even though the weather wasn't brilliant . Had a look around Burnt Gorse and the Orchid Bank yesterday , and apart from finding the first site Ringlet , found these few bits of interest ,
Today I did the bird survey at Down House , and finished with a respectable , for the site , 23 species .Only migrant recorded was a Blackcap , but it was good to find Skylark , Bullfinch and Yellowhammer on the visit . On the butterfly side , I was hoping for Marbled White , Dark Green Fritillary or Small Copper , but finished up with just Meadow Browns and Ringlets .
