Report from Roger Lane. Wednesday 5th May 2010

"Since the weather stayed sunny, it's mostly butterflies again I'm afraid. Actually, not a bad day considering the gloomy forcast. Right, morning totals (from c.4 localities): 2 x LARGE.White(1 female); 6 +,GVWhites; 2 x Orange-Tips;and 15+, Sp.Woods.
Afternoon totals from Pontsmill only: 1 x Brimstone; 1 x LG.White; 3 x Sm.Whites; 10+, GVWhites 4 x Orange-Tips; 1 x Peacock; 1 x Comma and 1 x RED ADMIRAL (first immigrant, pristine and on a path-way territory to which it constantly returned).
Some small birding interest: it sounds as if there are two Grn.W'Peckers at Pontsmill now (suspected for days), constant 'yaffles' from an inaccessible area. They could be holding a territory.
At Par around 5pm were just 3 x Sandwich Terns and a single (latish) Whimbrel on beach."

Thanks for the report Roger.
Butterfly list updated.
