Patch update (06/07/08)

Today I braved the rain and went for a quick walk on my patch – there was only really one big shower, and I actually managed to walk for most of it in one of the few sunny spells of the day!

Very few bird highlights – 4 x drake tufted duck and 1 x baby coot at Old Wheel Dam; 2 x dipper, 1 x grey wagtail and 3 x bullfinch (including a juvenile) at the Fisheries. Most of the male mallards are well into the eclipse (below).

And a couple of insects:
