Numerous orange tip -counted at least 10; peacock; speckled wood- on reclaimed quarry.

No skylark on what was once a breeding site -though thought a heard one singing from a adjacent road yesterday, so needs further observation.

Definitely one pair of Skylark remain. I have seen/heard the male sing on a number of occasions in the early morning.
