Final Brownfield Special

Thursday's final visit to the threatened Brownfield site didn't throw up anything new in the bird line apart from a Heron. Wednesday's 3 Bullfinches failed to show, but Barry Warrington's presence ensured the group were able to see a couple of female Speckled Bush Crickets, so many thanks to him again. The participants saw the first Small Copper we encountered on site, and the sunny intervals ensured there were more butterflies on the wing including: Red Admiral, Gatekeepers, Meadow Browns, Large Whites, Small Whites, Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, Ringlet; whilst Barry Spotted Holly Blues, Mottled Grasshoppers & a Latticed Heath Moth.
