5.9.15.

Saturday

Grey and dull start to the day. Also feeling cooler now, with it only being 10ºC. But In a couple of months time, I dare say I will missing even 10ºC temperatures.

Checked out The Wardens Lights first thing. Only four moths there. Including 2 Canary-shouldered Thorns. But I think I’ve posted enough images of that beautiful moth. The other moths there were a very worn Bordered Pug (Top Photo) and another Flounced Rustic…

The Rowan trees seem to have plenty of berries on. Lets hope we have a Waxwing year, and some turn up to feed on these berries at HC…

I really do think The Staffordshire Wildlife Trust are doing a great job keeping the Bracken at bay. So giving the Heather room to spread. I also think this year the Heathers seems to have given a beautiful show. So glad it appears that the Heather Beetles had little affect on these important plants for The Common. With the trees starting to turn into their autumn colours this was the scene on Goldie Heath this morning…

It was a strangely quiet morning on the photography front. So needing some inspiration I noticed some of the Honeysuckle with Dew on it (Next Photo). So this gave me an idea, for what I could take photos of this visit. So the rest of the photos will be with a touch Dew in them.  Can I say these are all natural, and no plant sprayer was used in the making….LOL…

Just glad I had the new boots on today. First time for ages, I went home with dry feet.
