Second wave of WHEATEARS

After nine days looking for Wheatears etc at Blows Downs and failing, I finally found two today, midway between Sharpenhoe Clappers and Sundon Hills CP, just off the main path (Icknield Way]. Also a lovely fresh Red Admiral flying with a Painted lady,just off the main path, in a sunny corner not far from the car park at Sharpenhoe, all firsts for me this year as was a Bee Fly also (Clive Harrington)
