2.7.15.

After one of the hottest days in years yesterday, it was back to the cooler sunless conditions on HC today. Which is typical, with yours truly not being able to make it yesterday.

Been seeing quite a few young Robins just lately…

This species of moth I saw yesterday on my own garden fence. Its called Eudonia mercurella. But on the wall of The Wardens Office this morning..

This was a good test for my new camera. Although not perfect, its 100 times better than I would have got with my old SLR. Especially how high up it was and tucked away in the dark. This is a Cream Wave…

This is Perforate St.Johns Wort. I have two St.Johns Worts in my garden. But this species looks totally different. Like the St.Johns Wort in my garden, Its an Anti-Depressant. Not sure if looking at it/eating it/smelling it or even rubbing it on your chest cheers you up. But there is plenty by The Wardens Office…

One of my favourite flowers has to be the Cornflower. Its a shame there is only one flowering in the Birch Coppice car park this year. Maybe there are more on the way…

I did manage to find a new Micro Moth. This one is called Dichrorampha petiverella. Also know as the Common Drill…

With this moth so high up on The Wardens Office, I’m not sure if I will get ID on this photo…

This is something I didn’t know…Some Shieldbugs Moult at different stages of their development. I noticed the tell tale signs of the white thread, just like the empty larva case of a Dragonfly…

Over the years I’ve got used to seeing the Larva and Pupa stages of a Ladybird. We used to get loads in our garden. But I’ve never seen a yellow one before. There were hundreds of the usual coloured Pupa up the Heathland Corridor today.

Ladybird Larva…

Unusual Yellow Ladybird Pupa. This maybe because I have never seen this stage…
