Officially the first day of summer and another warm bright day with Easterly winds. Notable birds were my first Crossbill of the year, an immature male that flew over West calling only to appear 5 mins late in a coniferous tree on lighthouse down, fed for a couple of minutes then moved on again. Later on a Hobby flew West over the Castle around mid pm.
I was excited to learn when we moved in that we have Wall lizards in the garden and between our garden, next door and the waste land at the end of the road there seems to be a very healthy population, apparently the Italian subspecies, I havent managed to photograph the largest males which are quite impressive but heres a couple smaller males from today.
Butterflys are becoming more obvious this past day or two but this Mother Shipton, day flying moth, was nice.
