Families of young tits have been visiting our feeders, notably great tit, blue tit and coal tit. We’ve also had regular visits from great-spotted woodpeckers including male (small amount of red on back of head) female (no red on head) and young (more extensive red on top of head).
There have been several sightings of red kites over the village, something that will become more common over time, I’m sure.
There seem to have been very few butterflies around this spring and early summer but in the last few weeks, ringlet and meadow brown butterflies have started to appear. A colony of marbled white near to Badby Woods has also added to the variety. RP
