I won't be on here for a little while, so a quick post to fill in for now.
The moth trap got off to a shaky start. After one session, the battery charger decide to die on me. This meant the 'portable' trap wasn't as portable as I wanted. I couldn't re-charge the battery. All sorted now though.
Here's a picture of one of the moths from the trap.
Copper Underwing, just about to take off, after having a few pictures taken. Certainly shows how it got its name.
Last month I spent about an hour in the company of a family of Spotted Flycatchers, that were at a nearby reservoir.
The next one is a delightfully named wildflower I found last month.
My Buddleia in the garden, has been a magnet for butterflies recently. I was very pleased when this one turned up. First time I've had this beauty visit the garden.
A slightly different view of a moth.
Lesser Broad Bordered Yellow Underwing
A nice little rarity found the other day, whilst out with Trevor. We were searching for Clouded Yellow butterflies. We did see one, as it zoomed past, but no picture. I did mange this though
Chiltern Gentian. Found in only a few places. And they didn't move.
And to end on, another nice little rarity. A trip yesterday to Frampton Marsh, to see a cracking bird. No, I haven't gone all 'twitchy'; it's just a cracking reserve to visit.
Enjoy your week.
