Area 51

Got a lift from Spadge and Carol to go and look at the new birdhide at the MOD site that we are privelidged to visit.Joe and the army workforce have done a fine job,it’s one of the few hides I’ve been in with windows high enough to prevent my back from being bent.

We saw a plethora of butterflies including small coppers,common blues,speckled wood and small skippers.Best birds were red kite,hobby,buzzard,kestrel,coal tit,goldcrst and a willow/chiff.
