Grane Butterfly Photos....18th August 2009











Charlie has been up at the top end of Holden Wood today and had the following Butterflies: Gatekeeper, Peacock, Red Admiral, Small Skipper, and Whites, plus a Small Copper photo which he got again at Holden Wood a few days ago.

Also yesterday was good for the Swallow migration which was going on with large parties making their way out through Grane and going out North West, which can be usual with some of the migration. We dont know for sure but possibilities are that they are following a line of the River Ribble and eventually South. Today there did not appear much Swallow migration but there where lots feeding up across from the Duke of Wellington (probably Steve's from Leys End Farm). He also had Reed Buntings going through...
