Whitlingham Woods

22nd June 2010
.
Ignoring hayfever and the ridiculous heat, Cathy & I went to Whitlingham in the evening. Rather than concentrate on the broads I decided to spend a couple of hours in the woods in the hope of locating the Spotted Flycatcher that Adam had reported the day before. I'm also yet to get Coal Tit or Goldcrest on the years patch list, so the potential was pretty good. Despite walking along all of the woodland edges and some of th other paths, we failed on all three accounts. A Treecreeper taking food to a presumed nest site and recently fledged Blue & Great Tits occupied us for a bit, but on the whole birdlife was quiet. Insect-wise my 3rd Red Admiral of the year, 2nd Brown Silver-line Moth and 1st ever Mullein Moth caterpillars were around the far end of the country park.
