|Jetstream Set To Return North
According to the Met Office an Azores high is likely to build from the early part of next week thus returning the UK to a more normal summer weather flow. Well I always feel that the best way to tell the weather these days is to stick your head out of the window but I really hope that this time there right.
My first Marble White Butterfly of the year was located on the Farm Field area and after a tiring tour of the reserve I'd recorded various numbers of: Small Skipper, Small Heath, Small Copper, Red Admiral, Comma, Meadow Brown and Ringlet. A few Whites were seen, too distant to ID and unfortunately there were a few marked absentees with no sightings of Gatekeeper or Common Blue, two species which should be easily found at this time of year! Dragonflies included: Brown Hawker, Black-tailed Skimmer and Common Darter.
