Exciting times at Low Moor Banks

I visited Low Moor Banks on Saturday mainly to look for any Lesser Whitethroats at the site, which sadly they weren’t.

However, as I was walking on one of the paths in the lovely sunshine I stopped as small dull butterfly landed on the path in front of me, my heart raced as I first thought it maybe a Grizzled Skipper!

On closer inspection I was wrong it was a Dingy Skipper still an excellent find and a site first! In fact I have never recorded the species anywhere in Bradford before.

The Status of this butterfly in Yorkshire is: Localised , increasingly rare!

It is far too early (Without more data) to suggest that there maybe a colony at the site but if anyone sees and photographs one please let me know.

The Southern Marsh Orchids are now starting to show at the usual spot at the site.

It will be interesting to see how many appear this year!
