Re: Wurzel

Devon Holiday cont'd 21-08-2017 I didn’t have to wait long for some more ‘butterflies’ as after the evening meal and while preparing another round of drinks my dad pointed out a small black and white moth on the wall. Best ID so far is Nemapogon clematella . Either way it was a species that I’d not ...

Re: Goldie M

Nice shot of the Purp Goldie :D I'd heard that early evening was good for seeing Purps but I didn't know that that was when they were more likely to come down...I'll have to try and make some evening visits next season, cheers for the tip off :D

Devon Holiday 2017 Cont'd Pennywell and ‘Home’ 21-08-2017 The day after the Abbey I spent mostly in bed and so missed out on visiting the Riverford Farm which supplies the Wurzel World with most of it’s food. All the muscles in my limbs felt like they were about to cramp and I could barely walk at o...

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 ...
