A not too early visit to the Leas and Bockhill was disappointing in the number of birds I saw.
However it's always a treat to see the Cowslips on Bert's lawn, even if they originally made the journey from Norfolk, with Bert, a number of years ago.
Just outside the garden I noticed this Harlequin Ladybird, the first I've seen this year. This is an alien species and unfortunately it preys on our native species and could be a serious threat to them.
This afternoon I went to Langdon cliffs to the old tramway, where Jack and Phil had seen a few Dingy Skippers this morning.
I had a close encounter with a couple of pairs of weasels that appeared to be having some sort of territorial dispute. This one sat down some distance away and stayed long enough for a couple of pictures, although the sun was not in a good direction.
I did see a couple of Skippers, but each time they just flew by and disappeared. I was luckier with a Common Heath moth. This is one of several day flying moths that are quite butterfly like when they are flying.
