The rising temperatures of the last few days meant that Old Moor's lanes were dotted with butterflies and - according to one visitor - the first of the damselflies, the blue-tailed, were "everywhere"!
Here's the summary of what was seen today...
From Adwick Washland, Gary Stones provided sightings and John Seeviour tweeted the update from Bolton Ings. Thanks both!
On the subject of insects, the first male banded demoiselles were seen today at Adwick, beside the bridge near the viewpoint. Time to look out for them at Old Moor, probably on the banks of Knoll Beck.
Until next time.
