This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Linford Lakes at lunch time

A quick stop off at CMK this morning held only a few Wood Pigeon and 150+ Starlings around the car park area.

Blackhorse Lake was unsurprisingly devoid of hirundines in the lunch time sunshine compared with yesterdays drizzle, just a few Common Terns remained.
Also quiet were the paths into and around the main reserve with most of the Chiff/tit flock having moved on.
I did note 1 Willow Warbler and 1 Chiff Chaff starting to sing again.
The hour was saved by insects with 3 Red Admirals on the buddleia and 10+ 7 Spotted Ladybirds around the wildlife garden wall. 2 Speckled Woods, 2 Meadow Browns and a Small White made up the numbers around the reserve. Dragonflies and darters were also numerous. Didn't bother with the hides today.
