It was actually quite sunny for times today including when I visited the Meadow late morning. However quite a strong wind meant that it was far from warm when on the unsheltered shore of the floods. Once again we are Waderless in Oxford with just the two LITTLE GULLS and Ronald to show for our efforts. Still plenty of hirundines and swifts around though the warmer weather meant that they were so low today. In Burgess Field there were actually a few butterflies on the wing including a small heath, a peacock and a small white. Over by the Spinney I spotted my first blue butterfly of the year. However it never settled so I couldn't tell which one it was though it looked too richly coloured for a holly blue to me.
