Who's A Pretty Boy Then !

On a day that my plans for booting the rubber wheeled steed to Shellingford Quarry were thwarted by meeting several people that wanted to chatter and then being shown a large pond owned by a mate resulting in only travelling to the outskirts of the village, nevertheless saw a Spotted Flycatcher catching insects from its favourite perch and also Small Copper, Gatekeeper , Comma and Small Skipper. The Buddleia at all its locations is literally covered in Peacocks, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admirals and assorted Whites. Back in the garden a Common Blue put in an appearance while A Budgerigar suddenly appeared on the bird feeder and stayed for some ten minutes before my visiting Daughter with her curiosity getting the better of her went outside for a closer look and spooked it.
