No moths to report. The fine weather tempted me out this morning to try to photograph the Crane at Grove Ferry. It was a fantastic spring morning no wind!!! Arrived near the Marsh Hide at about 10.00 when there was a Barn Owl hunting nearby-unlike the Crane a year tick! The Crane eventually flew off and I saw a Butterfly on the return walk-probably a Small Tortoiseshell but it disappeared almost immediately so not sure. Didn’t see any Hen Harriers despite 6 being reported. Temp into double figures at long last!
