First venture up the mountains this year in warm sunshine [15c] but no Wheatear in yet. So did a Skylark count and found 19 pairs displaying and holding territory, supported by 35 pairs of Meadow Pipit and 2 pairs of Stonechat. Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Blackcap could be heard down in Tudor Woods. As expected insects were low in numbers up here but a Speckled Wood and male Orange Tip were the first of the year. 3 species of hoverfly and the same with Bees. Green Tiger Beetles were common along the paths.
