A rude awakening

Heysham Obs
Some floor replacement in the office porch unearthed an indignant hibernating Peacock butterfly

The only other report of any note (as opposed to a single Red Nab Little Egret - how times change) was a large winter plumaged adult Med Gull on the seaward end of Heysham 2 outfall - undoubtedly one of the two seen yesterday there.

However, there were at least 7 Greenfinch on the office feeder.................more than a lot of other places and on-going from record numbers, yes record numbers, ringed in January (c55)!!
