    Forgot to mention a few butterflies here and there on the fell tops yesterday too. 2 Peacock and 2 Small Tortoiseshell.
    As Stephen noted, nice to see the waders back on territory, including a few Oystercatchers south of Abbeystead
    Large numbers of LBB gulls on Hawthornthwaite Fell Top – in the hundreds, maybe half as many on the top of Brennand Great Hill
