Re: Green Hairstreak - Favourite Photo of 2017

Green Hairstreak This was taken during mid May at my Duke site. I spent a fair amount of time searching for the Duke with no success but instead there were Greenstreaks absolutely everywhere. So many in fact I think I might need to change the name of my site! It was a fantastic Greenstreak day and I...

Re: Grayling - Favourite Photo of 2017

Grayling This was taken at Godshill on one of ‘those’ summer days that we had; when it was cool and drizzling despite it being August. It’s my favourite for several reasons. First because I only spent one day with Grayling this year so this serves as a reminder to me that I need to spend more time w...

Re: Trevor

I'd go for Herring Gull over the other species of large gull (Great or Less Black-backed or Common - which is actually anything but). The second shot shows the immature one which is a dirty grey colour. Distant and high birds are tricky but buzzards have a more 'chubby' silhouette and are less point...

Re: Neil Freeman

I'd heard that about the Apple Moth - wasn't it accidentally imported from Australia? Perhaps they were getting their own back but much in a much more subtle way? :wink: Great Nuthatch shot - one of my all time favourite birds they are; great colours, great calls, great behaviour and they also have ...

Re: Wurzel

Buckfast Abbey 19-08-2017 I headed back inside and we started planning out what we would do over the coming days and it was decided that as we were so close we should look around the grounds of Buckfast Abbey. SO we bundled into the cars and headed over. When we arrived there was a slightly autumnal...

Cheers Andrew :D Glad it helped get you through the afternoon, Friday is the most painful afternoon of the week - if I had my way I'd ban people from working from around midnight on a Thursday...but then I suppose Thursday afternoons would become the new Friday? :?
