Birds, butterflies and moths

Whilst “helping” with the meadow surgery on July 2nd we spotted a sparrow hawk carrying prey along the hedge (Big Meadow and Hay Meadow), an overflying curlew and heard a song thrush at the bottom of an Aldcliffe Rd garden There were numerous meadow browns and a silver y moth

  1. Nice sightings! There seem to be huge numbers of meadow browns at the moment but a dearth of bumblebees. The April-May drought seems to have been very hard on bees (honey bees too) with practically no nectar for them. But butterflies with their shorter season are doing well.

    I hope the meadow ‘surgery’ wasn’t too drastic!
