Alice Holt Forest

As the weather was not particularly good last Saturday I thought I would pay a visit to AHF specifically to look for egg laying females through the middle of the day. Although the sky was overcast it was warm and fairly still. After spending 2 hrs scouring likely looking sallows I was somewhat reassured by spotting five - possibly six - different females that all appeared to be egg laying. I did spot two or three males so hopefully things are looking a bit brighter for next year.
