A short walk along the River Ash to see if there were any damsels and dragons. None were observed but birds were in good supply. 2 lesser whitethroats added to the year list, as a pair of bullfinches called from dense vegetation, before flying past. Willow warblers, chiffchaffs, blackcaps and whitethroats were all vociferous, as were green woodpeckers, dunnocks and robins.
Orange tips, small whites, peacocks and speckled wood butterflies were evident.
