Spring sightings

A good walk along the network of disused railway tracks around Ryhill brought plenty of spring sightings on this warm and balmy day. With temperatures soaring to 17dg the butterflies were out in force with an abundance of comma, a few small tortoiseshell and around 8 sightings of brimstone all being notched up. The first chiffchaff of the year for us was recorded  just on the edge of the village and for the botanists, there were small numbers of coltsfoot in flower. With mild weather set for all week, there’s likely to be many more migrants arriving in the next few days
