Today’s sightings…

A pair of Pied Wagtails have bred at Toad Holes beck which is good news.  Also at the site I found (due to the cool spring) that Damselflies and butterflies were in short supply.  About 20 Azure Damselflies only were recorded however some were egg laying which was a good sign.  Two species of butterflies were observed a single worn Speckled Wood and 2 Small Whites.

Talking of Toad Holes beck Mark Brookes contacted me to say that he had seen a possible Leech at the pond.  I have not seen one myself but from a pond survey carried out in 2013 the species is present.

34 Jackdaws were at Caldene Fields including many juveniles.
