Off the blocks

It is always pleasing to get a record for the first day of the New Year!  Like Martin below, I managed to get started today although the sightings were all of early stages.  Bi-products of our annual search for Brown Hairstreak eggs on a particular blackthorn hedge at RSPB Otmoor, Oxon this morning were a Drinker caterpillar, seven Blue-bordered Carpet eggs and a Green-brindled Crescent egg.  It was intriguing to see some of the blackthorn in flower already...
