Bullcliffe NR

Sun is shinning so I decided on a quick visit out to the Bullcliffe site to see what was on the wing. Plenty of birds calling on my arrival Garden Warblers, Whitethroats and Willow Warblers being of note but I’d come for butterflies and a was soon on to a small blue type, thinking Holly Blue but i never got round to pinning that one down. Soon picked up another small butterfly on the daisy flowers this one proved to be a Brown Argus, a first for site for me a good start, other butterflies were Orange-tip, a Speckled Wood and a good number of Dingy Skippers. Other insects of note was a Gorse Shieldbug
