Election Wildlife

Might have got a few more votes if I hadn't been over the farmlands yesterday but needs must. Had Whinchat, Yellow Wagtail and Common Sandpiper, there's been up to 15 Swifts flying round during the evenings and a few Swallows and House Martins passing through. Lots of Whitethroats holding territories now and there were plenty of the usual insects out too in the warming conditions.

Still been very quiet on the moth front- Pebble Prominent was a good one and also think I had an Oak-tree Pug. 

Had Green Sandpiper calling at night on the sound recordings.  Also Common Sandpipers calling from the lake. 

 Had this fox in the garden 
 Peacock- also had Small Whites, Orange-tips, the first Common Blues, Brimstone and Small Tortoiseshell yesterday 
 Hoverflies are out now too- I need to revise these- think this one is E.luniger
 Pebble Prominent
 Oak-tree Pug ? 
Sent this mirid bug to I-spot for id
