Common buzzards were calling and to the east, in the distance, a red kite. Some good butterflies and dragonflies on the edges of the wood, with common darter, southern hawker, migrant hawker along with small skipper, green veined and small white. Green woodpeckers were heard and a possible purple hairstreak sighting, at a known sight for them. I shall return to check.

All in all, a good walk with plenty of nature on hand, some lending itself to reasonable photos. I trust the ramblers enjoyed the 3 hour saunter and saw creatures that they may not have observed before.
