During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Hailstorms and sunshine

This little moth/ butterfly flew into the kitchen at midday to avoid a hail storm, as Im not genned up on moths and butterflies can someone tell me what it is and if its common or not.

A decent day with plenty sunshine and blue skies marred only by a few heavy showers, some being hail storms but dried up in time to leave a pleasant evening.
Again the bird of the day were Swifts moving >N with a few LBB gulls heading >SW whilst a single Common gull flew over Foxhill early evening.
Danny, Cullingworth birder, has again seen and photographed 2 Common Terns at Yeadon Tarn , where are ours this year, has anyone had any local sightings yet?

1 Common Tern Flew over my head calling low down and away WNW toward Ogden/Fly Flatts. I rang you about it.

Sorry Nigel, forgot about that one, heads not what is used to be. We should have had plenty sightings by now, especially after the big move of Arctics recently.
