29th & 30th/5/15.

Two glorious days weather. But not a great day yesterday for me. Broke one of my camera’s, and spent most of yesterday, seeing if I could get it fixed, or have to buy a new camera. Turns out I need to buy another camera.

Yesterday:- These are the last 2 moths I managed to photograph with my 8 year old EOS 450D before it finally died on me. Can’t complain its been a good camera for all those years…

Shoulder-striped Wainscoat. This is only my 2nd ever Wainscoat, and both were new to me. I only saw my 1st one a week or so ago…

Also I saw another new moth, with another coincidence. The other day I took the Dark Arches. Yesterday I saw my 1st Light Arches…

With my small camera broke, I had to ask Ken to take the only other moth yesterday, which he did and sent me. This is a Snout. Well named with its big snout…

The only other thing I photographed yesterday was the Small Tortoiseshell. I needed to get home and check if I could repair my camera…

Today with only the one camera, I decided to do a Butterfly Survey. The Survey was one of my best this year with good numbers seen:- 35 Ringlet, 5 Small Heath, 23 Meadow Browns, 1 Speckled Wood, 2 Small White, 2 Small Tortoiseshell, 9 Large Skipper and 1 Red Admiral.

Before I set off, I did manage a phone photo of this Common Footman. At the Wardens Office…

I think these Frog Tadpoles better look out. I’m sure Goldfish eat them. This was taken at the Dog Pool…

Not sure what people think is so clever or entertaining about destroying this sign. Lets all hope it never happens to their property!!!
