Soar Mill Valley & Southdown Farm

Perfect conditions and on cue a Vagrant Emperor flying around Soar Mill Cove this morning. Seems there have been a few on the UK south coast. Also Comma, 5 Peacock, 5 Red Admiral & 4 Small Tortoiseshell.

Birdwise, first migrant Chiffchaff at farm and 6 probable migrant Buzzards over Southdown Farm, excluding the resident pair. Five soared up and out of site together and one flew high west later.
