23.5.15.

Overcast but a warm morning! So Good and Bad conditions for a Reptile Survey.

3 moths at the Wardens Office this morning..

Didn’t mix this moth up this morning. Unlike the Cream Wave the other week. This time it is definitely a Common White Wave (1st photo). Just for comparison I’ve posted the Cream Wave which I took just over a week ago (2nd photo)..

This was a new Ladybird for me. Never seen a 24-spot Ladybird before. For me what made it stand out was the Red Head…

Not sure why, but Grasshoppers and Crickets never get identified on iSpot very quickly. So at this stage looking at loads of photos of Grasshopper Nymphs. I would go for Common Field Grasshopper (Nymph)…

Would like to thank Gary Pascoe for the next photo. Also for keeping me on my toes. Not 100% happy with the identification. But I would guess this is a Coppery Click Beetle. I’ve only ever seen the Brown Click Beetle…

Now back to the Reptile Survey. Although overcast, we still got to see a number of Common Lizards (No photos).

But I did manage photos of Male and Female Slow Worms…

I was also to slow to see a Grass Snake the group found. But I did get the consolation of photographing a full Skin the Snake had obviously shed…
