Re: Can anyone help?

Many thanks Susie, Nick and Mark. My friend said that she picked up some fallen apples and found the four "caterpillars" eating the rotting (bruised) apple. She put the apple in her flower border and they immediately buried themselves in the dirt. My initial response was Crane Fly, as I ha...

Can anyone help?

A friend of mine saw 4 large plain grey "caterpillars" eating apple in her garden. When disturbed, they buried themselves in her flower border. She has no photos, but asked me what they were. I haven't got a clue.
Any offers? Many thanks.

Re: July 2011

I was very pleased to see a Painted Lady in the garden this morning, along with several very fresh Comma, a Red Admiral and two Hummingbird Hawkmoth, but these have just been eclipsed by (my first for the garden,) female Silver-washed Fritillary :D

Re: May 2011 Competition

Re: Sand point

Cream-spot Tiger are generally seen along the lower track after the 'hotspot' (past that big clump of bramble and beyond) toward the point.
I have seen them several times there on previous visits.
Wall tend to stick to the rocky outcrop at the top. Patience usually pays off.

Re: Sand Point 28th May 2011

I live locally, and heard that they were indeed flying on Friday. Very early this year.
They will be very worn by the end of May this year I fear.
I shall be going this week, so I won't be going on the 28th. (It will take me that long to get up and back on those slopes :lol: )

Agreed about birds, fingers, and dog turds. :roll: For one season we could do the family limited category's, Whites, Browns, Skippers, Fritillaries, Lycaenidae ( Blues, Coppers, Duke and Hairstreaks ) and Nymphalidae excluding Browns and Fritillaries, :? or is there a better way to sort 6 category'...

Re: January 2011 Immature stages

Congratulations to the winners. :)

My top three in order were, Vince's Lackey, Paul's Titania and Millard's Comma, but I also really liked Grumpy's Peacock and Antonym's unknown.
Some great shots there. It's a shame that the winner put in two entries. :(

Re: Peat conservation

if it's any consolation you can produce wildflower gardens without peat and without having to water them too so don't despair In fact, I have found from my own experience, many wild flowers and grasses prefer poor dry soil, so using peat is counter productive, keeping the soil wet and that in turn ...

Re: Upgrading my camera body

That's interesting Gary. I too am thinking of upgrading my 400D (yes, I'm still using my first camera)

I may well go for a mid-range model if the that is the price difference.
