25-05-12 Maple Lodge Nature Reserve

I conducted a brief afternoon visit to the reserve where I noted the female hybrid Mallard from Shell Hide with 8 of her original 9 ducklings remaining. All was relatively quiet due to the hot conditions but Garden Warbler and Blackcap were all heard singing. I still haven't heard or seen a Sedge Warbler at the reserve this year although one had been logged in the sightings record.

A good day for butterflies with Orange Tip, Brimstone, Large White, Holly Blue and Red Admiral all observed.
