Carlton Marsh

As spring finally arrived, the first confirmed Chiffchaff of the year was singing and, the Whooper Swan had relocated to the wader scrape. A large Mink was seen swimming to an island in the marsh (JP).

At mid-day as the temperature climbed to 15c overwintering butterflies were taking flight, 4 male Brimstone, 12 Comma, 2 Peacock and 1 Small Tortoiseshell plus a Tawny Mining Bee (Chris Parkin).

Meanwhile, Les Corrall had a Brimstone, Comma, Small Tort. and a Small White in his Cudworth garden. Along with 2 Little Owls.
