A male Lesser Whitethroat was in song at Toad Holes Beck this morning. Interestingly a male can usually be found at the site in song on this date…The species use to breed but not any more but each year I hope a passage male will attract a female and well you know the rest…
A migrant count included:
Blackcap: 1 Caldene Fields, 2 Raw Nook Nr, 5 Toad Holes Beck.
Willow Warbler: 2 Raw Nook Nr. No birds in at TH Beck as yet
Chiffchaff: 2 Raw Nook nr, 6 TH Beck
Swallow: 2 Caldene fields on 24/4/18
Following on from my sighting of a male Brimstone butterfly at TH Beck, Clare of the Low Moor & Oakenshaw conservation group saw a further 2 around TH Beck on the 18/4…
