Red Admiral

Thursday 7th April 2011, I had to travel to County Wexford. While there I took a look in the afternoon around Churchtown and Carnesore Point in search of freshly arrived migrants.  There were hundreds of Willow Warblers, smaller numbers of Chiffchaff, one male Blackcap and one Wheatear but nothing else of note on the birding front.  I did manage to see my first Red Admiral Butterflies for the year near Churchtown, along with Speckled Woods, loads of Orange-Tips and lots of 7 Spot Ladybirds also.
