Farm survey

Sunday 29 June 2014

Always worth rising early when you get glimpses of young foxes and Roe deer. Bird survey not very noteworthy though good to see a Reed Bunting - surprisingly unusual considering the water filled ditches and short river frontage.

Best flower of the morning was this, which has to be a Pyramidal Orchid.

Transect butterfly survey at Ewelme in the afternoon with my 17th species for the year - a rather tatty Gatekeeper. Numbers of Small Tortoiseshells continue to surprise with 44 counted!
