Yesterday was a day of "firsts" as when I came to update the list for the last blog Common Redstart and Swift were new for the year. When we arrived home we decided that we had to get down and do some of the domestic duties, so we decided to do some gardening. As you know, if you're into wildlife, you easily get distracted and I noticed a butterfly on the Choisya which turned out to be a Comma our first for the garden this year.

After our chores were done and a well deserved drink break we had a walk around Lytchett Heath in the hope of seeing a few reptiles. All we found was a Common Lizard followed shortly after by another first for the year for me on the Patch a pair of Large Red Damselflies in tandem.
