We went blackberrying yesterday morning. I took my binoculars along in the hope of seeing some warblers feasting on the berries but not a sign. The only birds I saw were a great tit and 12 mallard on the river nearby.
There were butterflies galore though feasting on the ripe blackberries - speckled wood, small white, lots of commas and red admirals looking pristine. A shame I had left the camera at home!
We collected several pounds of blackberries
We froze loads but some were used to make a blackberry and apple crumble
