After last weeks first for Britain things were always likely to be a bit of an anticlimax this week, however birding on the whole was pretty good with plenty of bits and bobs to keep up the interest.
Out on the levels things have been pretty quiet with an immature male Marsh Harrier on the 1st and 4th the best bird on show. Common Darters and Migrant Hawkers remain in double figures with the picture below taken on the 1st in particularly pleasant weather. Also on the 1st a single Small Copper was on White Dyke along with a smattering of Speckled Woods'. Moths have been particularly poor recently with nothing at all of note, this may partly be due to the bat spp swooping around the garden the other evening intent on finding its evening meal...
