Macro Walk - Newton Park Lake


Date: 23rd June - All Day
Location:  Newton Park Lake - Zones 1,2+5
Observation:  Decided to do a walk to the Lake, as no blog for 2 weeks, so apologies for this! We took our small lens for some macro, as too hot for birds, which defiantly proved correct, only seen around 20 species. Highlights included Grey Wagtail, Skylark, Buzzard, Yellowhammer. Lots of butterflies and bugs around today. Little Owl was calling from nest, not sure if chicks or adults. Marbled Whites are back again this year, slightly earlier than normal, first ones around NSL are normally beginning of July! Apart from that, not much else around.
Weather:  Sunny, 25 Degrees, Very Light Wind

Other Species: Buzzard, Coal Tit, Bullfinch, Skylark, Yellowhammer, Little Owl (heard), Goldfinch, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Crow
Butterflies:  Marbled White, Peacock, Comma, Small Tortoiseshell, Meadow Brown, Ringlet, Speckled Wood, Small Skipper
