overall i counted 6 whitethroats(pair and 4 young)after getting decent views of all the juvaniles/female birds i was able to single the adult female out by the lack of a gape as well as a few other small fetures.but apart from this family there was little else around apart from a lesser whitethroat(still holding teritory on moorhall meadow) and 4 garden warbler and 2 coal tits on feeders.my other focous was to see some insects the ones i identified were:
2 small tortoiseshell
20c meadow brown
1 red admiral
20c small coppers
10c speckled woods
and this unidentified moth(or butterfly)
didnt do much exploring over the patch this weekend and just concintrated in a few areas.back to normal next week.
