Mill Hill buzzard

Small White
I finally found a sunny window this morning to do my weekly transect at Mill Hill with the following result: 2 Common Blue females, 2 Green-veined White, 1 Large Skipper, 3 Marbled White, 4 Meadow Brown, 7 Small Heath, 1 Small Tortoiseshell, 1 Small White.
It was interesting to watch a buzzard soaring overhead carrying a pheasant and a Kestrel looking for its next meal. There were many Pyramidal Orchids in flower.
