25th May

An absolutely glorious day with brilliant blue skies and barely a breathe of wind. With the drop in wind, the miniscule trickle of movement continued with the addition of some much missed Chiffchaffs and Willow Warbler accompanying the handful of Spotted Flycatchers. The remnants of yesterday's Reed Warbler passage were scant with just a single singing male left behind.

The lepidopterans were also appreciating the hike in temperature with the first Adonis Blue within the Obs area on the slopes and the first Lulworth and Large Skippers of the year on the wing.
