Cooler day today, with not so much sun. But it was nice to have a walk with Ken again.
Started the morning off, with a new moth at the Wardens Office. I did think I had seen a Pink-Barred Sallow before, but when I checked back through my photos/records, It turns out this is my first. I love this moths eyes….
Checking the area where I saw the two Nymphs yesterday, to see if I could show Ken them. Ken spotted these two Common Green Shield Bug Nymphs….
Update… Talking about the nymphs from yesterday (Photo Below). The main reason I could not find them on the Shield Bug website, was because they were not Shield Bugs. They were in fact Nettle Ground Bugs….
There is now a good selection of Fungi/Slime Moulds around HC. I was actually looking for Ink Caps, but did not find any. So here are a selection of Fungi/Slime Mould I photographed today….
After seeing so many Jays yesterday, and photographing one helping itself to a Hazel Nut. This was a bit of a gruesome sight to see. I would guess a Buzzard had had a good meal. But it was in the area where I had seen the Stoat. Not sure if Stoats can climb trees to catch roosting birds, but this was the outcome…..
This is only my second ever 24-Spot Ladybird I have ever seen. Both this year…..
