A very nice day to walk around the reservoir at Eglwys Nunydd. The wind had a bit of an edge to it but in some of the sheltered areas out of the wind it was very warm. I saw this Peacock on the West side of the res.
Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae)
I saw my first Small Tortoiseshell on the 4th March this year but at least three were on the wing around Eglwys today. There were also lots of bumblebees flying, mostly Buff-tailed bumblebees but, also at least 1 Early Bumblebee. I also saw a pretty good candidate for Orange Underwing (Archiearis pathenias) but only seen briefly so I can't be certain.
In the wood on the North side of the reservoir 3 Chiffchaff were moving swiftly through the bushes and George Morgan had another near the fishing ticket office also today.
