Black-and-white Warbler

Many birds do not live up to their names, for example, Kentish plover, a rarity in the UK, or Dartford Warbler, to the best of my knowledge missing from SE England. But here is a photo of one that magnificently does – Black and White Warbler

Problem with video

Some people had a problem accessing the video I posted earlier today. I have now changed the settings and this issue should now be resolved.

We are pretty much on lockdown now except for trips to the shop, to get food, and walks in the park next door. I have a few trips I haven’t written up yet so I will continue with those for the time being and then see where we are, material wise.

Looking forward to emergence of local butterflies and Dragonflies

I am away for the next two weeks and so am going to post some photos which didn’t make it into original posts. I will be back posting regularly after Christmas.

The Small Tortoiseshell is one of the UK’s commonest garden butterflies. It may hibernate over winter and so is one of the species that can be seen on warm days throughout the year.

It is found across a wide geographic area stretching from Western Europe to China and Japan. There are even a few records from New York but this may have been deliberately released there.
