A walk to White Holme, from Turvin Road, and part way along the drain, brought me my first green hairstreak up here, plus many green tiger beetles, a few emperor moths and lots of peacock butterflies. I also heard a reeling grasshopper warbler and a merlin flew northwards over. It was also nice to bump into and chat with a man from Halifax Scientific Society. I think he was called Pete Smith.
