Sighting

27-05-2019

12.15 - 13.30. I have only been to this slope later in the season in the past, so it was interesting to see it in late May. I thought MF might be present, but DoB is a nice surprise. There was lots of AB on the hillside late summer last year, and good numbers again on the lower slopes this visit, despite a strong breeze coming off the Vale of Pewsey. The LS was my first of the year - by the looks of it, it had been on the wing a while. [NB the cattle in the field where the track heads towards Milton Lilbourne are prone to getting excited and stampeding, and are best avoided.]
