Sunny spring day

Sand Martin- about five birds investigating the Sand Martin Bank. Shelducks also looking for a nesting place around the lake.
Streamer- a first for Beddington 
Brimstone- 8+ today, also 10+ Peacock, 30+ Small Tortoiseshell, 1 Speckled Wood, 1 Holly Blue, 5 Comma, 5 Large White and 5 Small White 
Leucophora sp
Drone Fly
A few flies- a big influx of insect life today in the warm and sunny weather conditions

Not too many migrants in this weather but plenty of local activity, insects, breeding behaviour and plenty of singing going on. A few Buzzards going over all day and Sparrowhawks displaying.
