I've been back in sunny MK for about a week now, so here's a quick post.
Firstly, Whisky traveled back home from Wales under protest. He misses the green fields and other dogs. So do I.
He still does not like travelling in the car, despite short trips every morning to Caldecotte Lake, in the hope of him getting used to it.
(I will manage a new blog post on there soon, but there just seems so much to do in the days now. Still, it's better than being sat in front of a computer screen for too long.)
Once we get to the lake though, he loves to be able to run around and have fun.
The warm sunny weather recently, has been great for the butterflies and damsels,
and even some day flying moths.
The night time moths have been really good too.
Managed a few excellent nights with the traps whilst in Wales; most of the results have been posted on my website. I'm finding these Lepidoptera fascinating, even though some of them can be a bugger to ID.
I've not forgotten the birds, although I'm finding myself less worried about seeing new species now.
The first two are a couple I took in Wales before I came home.
Next three are from our recent visits to the local lake.
Moorhen on a log
Long Tailed Tit juvenile.
One of the two Oystercatchers that have bred there again.
I'll finish on a bug from one of the moth traps.
Thanks to Trevor for the ID on this one:
