Thanks Phil. A friend of mine lives not so far away from you, I will tell her to keep her eyes peeled, meanwhile I will try your nyger trick and see if I can tempt any to Withnell. I love seeing Bramblings but have never seen any locally.

I haven't seen a greenfinch lately but do get goldfinch now when 20 years ago none. Get collar doves daily, jackdaw, coal, blue ad Great Tits, occasional LTT, big increase in number of house sparrows, steady numbers of starlings and increasing numbers of buzzard and raven.

It has been a good year on the reserve for both White Letter Hairstreak and Purple Hairstreak (plus one sighting of a Green Hairstreak) which have been regularly seen until last week and in multiple numbers.
