Birds poor Butterfly's great

Wind was lighter and a lot milder than yesterday but our visit was frustrating only producing 3 House Martin and 16 Swallow heading north mainly in singles over a 4 hour period and a Common Tern leaving to the east. Other sightings included at least 4 Willow Warbler, plenty of Chiffchaff and Blackcap calling though few seen, 2 Yellow Wagtail, 8 Buzzard, 3 Gadwall, 3 Goldeneye, the “blonde” RcP and Long-tailed Duck.
Away from the wind then the mid-day sun brought out 6 Brimstone, 5 Peacock and Comma in the country park and trailer park areas while back home my first Green-veined White and Holly Blue of the year appeared mid-afternoon.
