Visited two Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust reserves
near Oxford today with Dry Sandford Pit producing two hoped for Southern
Damselflies while Whitecross Green Wood had the delightful Black Hairstreak
with 3 on show though 12 had appeared yesterday. Plenty of year ticks as well
with Emperor Dragonfly, Southern Marsh Orchid and Marbled White plus good
numbers of Meadow Brown, Large Skipper and Red Kite.
Black Hairstreak - that's the problem being a short-arse the bushes are to tall for us midgets
