Orange Tip

First Orange Tip of the year 
Hoverfly- plenty of hoverflies along the path
The cold wind returns and combined with the clear skies is not producing too much in the way of vis mig. A few Swallows moving through.
In the sheltered spots out of the wind along the path, the sun is quite warm and insects are buzzing around. Plenty of hoverflies and flies, Early Mining Bees, Tawny Mining Bees, Bee-flies, a few Bumblebees, my first Wasp and Brimstones, Peacocks, Small and Large Whites and my first Orange Tip for the year. A couple of Speckled Woods on the bridge.
