Recent Patching (8th-9th July)

Two subsequent patch visits following the same route and time of day (6pm ish).  As a result, the outcomes were rather similar.  All the same 14 Small Tortoiseshells on the 8th were superseded by 21 Small Tortoiseshells on the 9th (exceptionally good numbers this year!) whilst 4 Red Kites on the 8th exceeded the single Red Kite I saw on the 9th.  Meadow Browns were large in number on both days with no noticeable change but a single Marbled White had emerged by the 9th.
