A Reed warbler singing from the Willow at the Covehurst pond yesterday, perhaps the bird that I heard briefly from the thorn scrub there a while ago. Otherwise another migrant arrival. Today a Reed warbler was a delightful addition to the birds of Ore Valley. One singing frequently from a stand of Reeds and other plants in the Power site area. Has it come in just as the reeds have grown a bit taller and will it try to keep up a territory here?
Emperor Dragonfly was patrolling the water and there were good numbers of Azure, Blue-tailed and Large Red Damselflys.
Two Painted Lady butterflies appeared at North’s Seat yesterday and today one visited Ore Valley. There seems to have been an arrival of Marmalade flies and Silver-Y Moths.
