Linford Lakes at lunch time
A pleasant visit to Linford this afternoon. It started with a Small White Butterfly near the city centre and then a mint condition Red Admiral at Linford, both enjoying the 16oC temperatures and the sunshine. Also at the reserve, numerous Migrant Hawkers and even teneral Darters. Plus a Little Egret, Cettis singing, 1 female Blackcap and a Stonechat in the brown field along the access track. Something had spooked all the Lapwings and Gulls from the bund as they were noisy and flying all over the place.
