3rd/4th August,2008.

A bit restricted at the moment due to a damaged ankle but progressing!!! The 3rd (Sun) had unexpected and awful weather after hopes had been raised for change. The whole predicted weather system has now changed completely for the next few days.
The 4th was a gorgeous day with butterflies much in evidence locally ( Ringlet,
Small Tortoiseshell, Meadow Brown and Green-veined White ).

Throughout the day it was interesting to see a (small ) progression of warblers moving through the garden. Willow Warblers and a Whitethroat, and all juveniles, feeding for a while before setting off unerringly on their southwards migration across an open field to the next scrub-clump.
