Hawfinches still on Local Patch
As the sunny, settled weather continues, at least three Hawfinches were still present today around the Dimore Playing field at the rear of my garden in Quedgeley (photos above and below). Two singing Chiffchaffs and a singing Blackcap have also been present in the vicinity since Tuesday as have a pair of Bulfinches. A Brimstone butterfly made an appearance in the garden this afternoon, the second this week, the first being on Tuesday.
At Netheridge, two Little Egrets continue to use the pool near the Hempsted bypass, both being seen at 9:00am.
