very early sightings
A male was seen in Black Park Bucks on the 14th, and another near Rushbeds Wood Bucks on the 15th. I have spoken to both observers and I have no doubt that they saw iris. It is impossible, however, to rule out the possibility that these were the result of releases, because no further sightings have been made in the Upper Thames region to date. We await, therefore, the 'proper' start to the season.
