A brief update on a wood in Todmorden.
Couple of weeks ago 6 small tortoiseshell and 1 Comma, also Chiff-Chaff. Today a speckled Wood, male Blackcap, Nuthatch and Long Tailed tits and a few Swallows overhead and a Buzzard.
Only the odd few Meadow Foxtail in flower–very late for this grass and is beaten this year by Sweet Vernal, which rarely happens.
Mountain Melic in flower today, as are Kingcups. Lots of Tortrix moths flying about, which suggests the Oak buds are swelling.
