Quick dash round 2 of my "local patches"

1 January 2013

Not a great deal to report but 2 warblers can't be bad for here - Blackcap in garden and Chiffchaff alongside Preston Crowmarsh Sewage works. 24 species at the Watercress Beds was about average but missed out on the Water Rail that has been very secretive this winter and probably only a single individual present - mind you there is a bit of water about in ditches, fields and just about everywhere so perhaps when elsewhere freezes...

First butterfly of the year - a Brimstone and it was free flying NOT disturbed out of its sleep by me!
