Seven Species Day.

 On Wednesday I had my first 7 species of butterflies in one day of the year. In fact it has very rarely happened in March. It also produced 2 new species for the year with a male Small White at the start of the walk and a Speckled Wood at the end of it.

Other species were lots of Peacock, several Comma, Brimstone and Small Tortoiseshell and a single Red Admiral.

The day was also quite notable by 3 Red Kite flying over and being chased off by the local Buzzards.

One of many Peacock seen.
