Re: Neil Freeman

That Oak Beauty certainly lives up to its name Neil :D It does look like it's going to be a late season but hopefully that'll mean it'll be a cracker :D

Re: Wurzel

The final sightings…up to 29-10-2017 The final run-in, although I didn’t know it at the time started on the Thursday of half term (26-10). We were heading off to the marvellous Riverford Farm, not the one in Devon but the Hampshire one. It was time to pick our Pumpkins, and also sample a few of the ...

Re: millerd

All the usual fare...used to be those three species you got shots of were rarities Dave :shock: If only butterflies followed suit and we had a few more additions to the British breeding list :D Great set of shots BTW :D

Re: Wurzel

Five Rivers 25-10-2017 Making the most of the half term break I took a quick jaunt while the girls were in the pool. I started off along the Riverpath deciding to wend my way along with the slight meanders and then cut up and across to the top of the Banks. There were still leaves on the trees but t...

Re: Bugboys mission

Great gif Bugboy :D and great set of bird shots :D I'd get that Pied/White checked out by the county bird recorder as I know that White Wagtails do pass through on passage and are probably under-recorded but I'm not sure how often they overwinter? If it is a White it would be a great find :D Have a ...

Re: Overall Favourite Photo of 2017

Overall Fave I really struggled to choose my overall Fave. It was hard enough selecting my favourites for each species so in the end I succumbed and made the task ever so slightly easier by opting for two... The first was from my first Welsh trip and covers the behaviour (a doomed courtship) and in ...

Re: Wurzel

Stourhead 22-10-2017 We are now entering the period of the year when any butterfly sighting should be cherished as if it is the last of the season because it could well be. So it was great to see a Red Admiral on Saturday 21st bravely battling before blustery Brian (storm) outside Waitrose. As my si...

Re: White Admiral – Favourite Photo of 2017

White Admiral This was taken at East Blean and I chose it because it’s one step closer to the prefect underwing shot that I’m striving for. It’s not square on an the wings are slightly raggedly but it’s the closest I’ve come to capturing the reds and oranges of the underwing…a couple more steps and ...

Wall Brown This was taken on an excellent day out at the Hill. I was lucky this year to see several Walls so I had to think long and hard about the choice of my fave. This one won out as it turned up both ‘where’ and ‘when’ expected. The ‘where’ was at the bottom of the hill towards the far end of t...
