Local Update

On 27th March at Swalesmoor I saw a Peacock Butterfly and a few Tortoiseshells; another Peacock was in nearby upper Shibden Valley. Yesterday 28th on Soil Hill were several Tortoiseshells with at least 2 pairs seen close together.
The frogspawn I posted and pictured on 11th March at Soil Hill hatched a couple of days back, sadly I don't hold out much hope for it. Yesterday 28th, I saw a much reduced number of tiny tadpoles struggling in an algae covered 2 inches of water.

Here is the link for the mammal database showing reported records from recent weeks; the previous years records (upto 23/04/2011) have now been archived.
