Garden nature update, a new butterfly species and the juvenile birds keep coming

It’s been a glorious start to August, weather-wise, and I added a new butterfly to the garden list on the first of the month.

I spotted the meadow brown from inside the house and went outside, where I managed to get photographs on my phone.

That’s the ninth butterfly species to date from the garden in 2022, so really pleased with that.

I’d like to get to ten but, as with any nature watching, you can’t make species appear.

All you can do is keep watching.
