Lavernock WT Res/Cosmeston

At Lavernock reserve: 4 Magpie, 7 Blackbird, 4 Woodpigeon, 2 Blackcap, 4 House Sparrow, 1 Chiffchaff, Dunnock, 3 Robin, 10 Jackdaw, Wren, 2 Crow, 2 Swallow. Then Leps were - 3 Orangetip, 2 Speckled Wood, 4 Holly Blue, 1 Brimstone, 2 Large White. Finally I saw 1 Early Purple Orchid in flower in the wood and there were a few nice patches of Cowslips.

At Cosmeston it was pretty quiet. A Moorhen pair have 3 chicks on the green weedy pool by the start of the Medieval Village boardwalk, the dipping pond Mallards are now down to 1 duckling out of an original 6. There was a Common Blue Damselfly there. 2 Greylags on W lake and total of 14 Mute Swan [both lakes]. A single drake Tufty remains. Lesser Whitethroat singing in the W paddock hedgerow.
