May 12th 2012.
Another reasonable day looking for butterflies though away from the sheltered areas the northerly wind was cool. The Just So Café had Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, Brimstone and Green-veined White while Stockton Cutting produced our first Grizzled Skipper, 2 Dingy Skipper of the year plus Peacock, Green-veined White, 3 Orange Tip. The first Early Purple Orchids were out while a longhorn moth was identified later as Incurvaria masculella. Only bird of note was a Whitethroat.
