On the move...

Certainly Painted Lady butterflies were on the move again today with a real influx being noted during the past couple of days but especially today, they were everywhere...brambles,beach and budleia(25 at a time in the one bush!)
Swifts were moving westwards together with a few Swallows; Sandwich Terns were noted again but not as many as recent days in the harbour; Common Sandpipers were seen in the harbour and on the Lagoon and Whimbrel were heard.
The Swallows are still very busy feeding their nestlings in the hide and I suspect they will fledge any day now!
