Visited Low Moor Banks yesterday in the rain but it was worth it as the Southern Marsh orchids were showing off!. I counted a total of 114 flowering orchids which is slightly down on last years count of 146.

Received a welcome email from Nicola who stated she had seen 2 Lesser whitethroat ( not a common bird in the Bradford area) on the Greenway on the 5/6. There has also been a male LW in Toad Holes Beck since early May singing from the same location. Both these sighting suggest possible breeding. It will be interesting to see if any juveniles appear later in the year.
