 Female Mallard with young- the first brood of the year
 Skylark- at least two pairs of Skylark holding territory on the mound
 Epermenia chaerophyllella - a new one for me
Melecta albifrons (Thanks for id Chris from I-SPOT) - in Hackbridge today feeding on Ribes 
Cheilosia pagana (Thank you UK Hoverflies)  Added to the photo list HERE

The Spring burst continues. A bit slow on the bird front- a few Buzzards, a handful of Swallows, a few more Blackcaps moved in and sounds like more Chiffchaffs. Seems like a few Goldfinches moving around today too.
Holly Blue and Specked Wood new for the year.
A few moths last night including a moth tick for me: Eperminia chaerophyllella, also Pale Mottled Willow, Common Quaker, Twin-spotted Quaker, Platyedra subcinerea, Oak Nycteoline, Emmelina monodactyla and Double-striped Pug.
