Out fishing with my son today on the outskirts of Alice Holt at Lodge Pond which is just across the road from Birdworld. Much to my surprise spotted a pristine male on the ground at the edge of the pond taking salts etc (this is not an area where I've encountered males before). He allowed me to touch and his wings were still very soft. Seems like males are still hatching down here in Hampshire.
