I have managed a couple of pic's mostly of a few juveniles there's loads about, there's still a few active nests also with birds going for 2 or 3 broods. Swallow, Linnet, Pipit's and Reed buntings are still sitting on eggs or feeding young. There's also butterflies and bees everywhere, I think the hot weather has helped the birds recoup their numbers after last year's bad season.

|one of this years redstarts, was hoping to see a ring on it's leg so it'll be the brood that Steve Carter ringed.|
I've took these two photo's of butterflies, think they are small tortoiseshell and small white perhaps? I'll have to get myself a buddliah bush.
Also found this common lizard crawling between the stones, it seems to have lost some of it's tail.
|what's happened to your tail mate?|
Here's some foxgloves they're growing everywhere up here.
This I think is cotton grass:-
This is it close up.
Thought I'd finish with some nice sunset pic's.
It has been a cracking few weeks weather wise lets hope the sun keeps on shining all summer long.
