Pitstone Hill today

Great day for butterflies and insects but not many birds around. Best sighting was 5 Common Kestrels hanging overhead (presumably a family party) plus a Common Buzzard and  Red Kite who all intermingled quite happily. Caught up with a juvenile Common Kestrel later (see pics) and male Yellowhammer.

Masses of Chalkhill Blues (see pics), Small Heath & Small Tortoiseshell (see pic). Also large numbers of dragonflies and damselflies. See pic of Common Darter (Sally Douglas)
