As most of the UK basks in some well deserved sunshine and warmth, there is no such luck for us souls on the northeast coast. Friday was nice and clear with blue skies and sun, but since then it has been 100 yard visibility with thick fog, mist, haa all day this side of the A1. Combine that with a blithering south easterly and temperatures struggling into double figures its been a few days for watching Netflix rather than hunting for wildlife.
Since Bonxie Wednesday birding has been almost non existent but I have been out and about. My notes reflect an apathy about it all.
Saturday 29th May
Cool sea fret all day.
In the Greenhouse were Walnut Orb Weaver and Tetrix denticulata. An Orange Tip, male, was in the garden briefly.
Tetrix denticulata, only my second.
