Tuesday 14th May

Another cool start to the day but at last the greenery is starting to grow. We came across three Roe deer this morning and as can be seen from the attached shot of a last years young, it’s in the middle of shedding the winter coat, at least it thinks things are warming up !

On the long pond there were the first clutch of Mallard ducklings, see photo, she will struggle to keep them all safe, from all the predators.

This afternoon there was a newly emerged Orange Tip butterfly in Gillies Field, the orange was really sharp and bright.
