Whilst this nearby site is not in our groups conservation area, we still have a real interest in the site and for my part I keep records and observations for the area.
So it was a welcome sight this morning to see 3 Small Heath butterflies enjoying the sunshine. I have consistently recorded the species at Dealburn Road which has not been recorded anywhere else locally ( to my knowledge). Also there was a calling Lesser Whitethroat and with the area having idea nesting habitat…well fingers crossed.
Out of focus…Small Heath at Dealburn Road
