It's back after a few years break. In 2017 I'm again going to try and see 1000 species in the 1km square that contains a large part of Waldridge Fell. I'll list everything I see with hopefully a few photographs and tales along the way.

It was better during the week
Still very quiet around with the highlights being during the week with that little bit of sun. It produced a Peacock butterfly on Wednesday, quickly followed by my first Ladybird, a Seven-spotted and Hoverfly, the abundant Marmalade Fly [Episyrphus balteatus] of the year, the latter being my earliest ever.
Today the highlight were a couple of singing Chiffchaff in the woods, making my bird list rise to 88 for the year.
