Sat June 29th News

Briefly, as I'm heat struck and shattered....

Alice Holt Forest and Havant Thicket (both Hants) kicked off today, but none was seen in Chiddingfold Forest and Fermyn Woods.  

There was a modest emergence at Knepp Wildland today, but not the numbers I'd expected. I struggled to see 21 - which is rubbish for Day 6 at Knepp. None was seen there before 11.20 today.

The emergence pattern is odd this year, slow and stuttery: they should be coming out with a bang in this heat, but they're not.

As an aside, I saw a freshly emerged Peacock this evening - June 29th. This is the first time I've seen a fresh Peacock in June.
