Saturdays bird count at Prestwick Carr was postponed to Sunday due to the weather ( exaxtly the opposite of Fridays forecast!) but even with a bright sunny morning things were very quiet on the bird front so attentions were turned to Butterflies. A whole brigade of Small Coppers were up the range track, more than I can recall having ever seen probably 50 - 100.

A single Comma near the Golf course.

A few Small Skippers.

And the remnants of numerous Meadow Browns seen over the previous weeks all now looking very faded and tatty.

Boatloads of Small Whites by far the most abundant species.

Just a smattering of Tortoiseshells

and a few Green viened White plus my first Carr dragonfly being I think a Common Hawker which led me a merry dance up and down the bumpy road without ever perching to allow a photograph.
