Small tortoiseshell

Lapwing on territory in the meadow

Prescot reservoirs,

Pretty quiet today but lovely in the spring sunshine. 13 oystercatchers, 60 lapwing, 6 great crested grebe, 2 gadwall, 13 cormorants, 2 kestrel m+f, 2 buzzards, green wood calling, and 3 chiffchaff singing.

250 common gull, 100 black headed, 20 lesser black backed, 30 herring gulls.

The butterflies and moths were enjoying the sunshine with 2 comma, 2 small tortoiseshell and a small quaker basking in it.
