Carlton Marsh

A Little Egret was present and Grasshopper Warbler is still singing.

Littleworth Park (Monk Bretton reclaimed spoil tip)
A Skipper butterfly taken on Friday 28th July, by Chris Parkin, was confirmed as Essex Skipper by Steve Mattock and David Smith yesterday on photographic evidence (YNU).
A far as I know the only previous records for this locality are 3 at Wintersett in July 1996, which were the first for Yorkshire - taken by M. A. Thompson et al)
