Bulcliffe Nature Reserve

A quick visit out to the Bulcliffe colliery Sight to see if I could find any surprises to-day in the heat wave we were having at present.

There was a good number of Silver Y moths about long with a great number of Ringlet and Meadow Brown Butterflies on the wing, Common Buzzards overhead with Yellowhammer, Willow Warblers and Common Whitethroat singing from the bushes added to the wonderful stroll I was having around this small nature reserve, Small HeathCommon Blue, Large Skippers and Small Tortoiseshell Butterflies added to my short visit
