The witch is back

26th June I found this Mother Shipton near Bank's Pond
Today I re-located what may be the same individual but somewhat the worse for wear
Also today my first Speckled Wood of the year and a Lesser Whitethroat singing from this hedgerow. For some reason this is their favourite spot on my patch having been present there in probably five of the last ten years but quite why its so good for them I don't know. A large dense planting of Whitethorn with Hawthorn but next to a fairly busy (in the context of my patch) junction, consequently no pictures were had.


  1. Exactly where was your' lesser whitethroat' hedge photo taken?

  2. Junction of Prestwick Carr Road and Horton Grange Road 1km north of Dinnington NZ204742. Bird singing again this evening
