This morning whilst sitting at the back door, my wife spotted some small bird activity in some trees near us. After both of us observing through binoculars for sometime waiting the birds to come out, we saw the humble little House Sparrow. At last. These little birdies have declined over recent years, which is a bit of a worry. That was the only species I managed to spot today due to me having other stuff to do.
Now yesterday I promised you the pictures of the Purple Hairstreak butterfly eggs, and I hope I do not disappoint thee with the following offerings:
|Egg just below Oak bud.|
|Same egg under microscope.|
|Another egg placed at bottom of buds.|
|Again, the same egg magnified.|
In the meantime here's the updated list of everything spotted so far:

You'll also noticed that I got the latin name for the bracket fungi (No:50).
Till next time ;)
