Slowing Down

    Well, May often starts well but quickly slows down around here and lockdown has not altered that. I still managed a couple of waders on a rare visit to BHM on Saturday 16th. Little Ringed and Ringed Plovers were both present and 4 Curlew outnumbered the 2 Whimbrel for a change.
     A lone Red Kite brightened up my exercise walk to Colyton Hill on 20th. The next day, I saw my first Painted Lady of the Spring. Not much to report then but May can often have a sting in the tail!
