And more patch butterflies (29th July)

Butterflies were really out in force today despite the earlier light shower.  Some intermitent sunshine brought out 23+ Large Whites, 12+ Small Whites, 20+ Gatekeepers, 11 Peacocks, 2 Essex Skippers, 2 Commas, 2 Small Tortoiseshells a blue sp. and plenty of Meadow Browns.

A family of 7 Pied Wagtails (including 6 recently fledged juveniles) were feeding around Langley Lodge Farm but other than that it was typically quiet.
