Butterflies not birds, sorry.

The white-letter hairstreaks are now flying in Thrintoft. The colony is even bigger than I previously thought and may be Yorkshire’s premier site! Best viewing points are the 8 or so tall wych elms surrounding the dressage warm-up field gate on Myers Lane and the last trees on the North side of the lane as you walk West in to Thrintoft.
