The first adder I've seen this year. We are lucky to have adders and grass snakes living opposite our house on an area of gorse and heather. there are glow worms there also in the summer.


..another thread I've only just caught up with - people are very lucky to have all these lovely creatures visiting their gardens... well, apart from the slugs perhaps...

due to forum issues it's been quite a task viewing them all...


Amazing pictures everyone. I have really enjoyed scrolling through every one of them 

. Here is my contribution.


 I love taking photo's of wildlife
 a tame robin we used to have visit every single day. He would feed from my hand. We dont see him anymore and we miss him 


 This Robin visits my garden. I noticed it was a peculiar colour. I have been informed it has a plumage abnormality, and is leucistic.

My blue tits fledged on Saturdy 1st June and this one was the last to leave the box. Seven fledged altogether and we have thoroughly enjoyed watching them on our nest box camera over the last few weeks.






Nice to see this thread back in action. I'd forgotten it. Nice pic daintiness.

I have a Green Carpet moth to offer. One from last weekend's trap.



How do you set up a mothtrap.? I would like to see what we get  at night.  No bats so far this year.

sorry fb I missed this yesterday. we have a rather crude Skinner type trap, see link.

we leave it on all night and see what we've got in the mornings. the moths are atracted to the light and crash around like they do, fall through a narrow gap between two sheets of perspex, can't get out and hide amonst the egg boxes in the bottom til we come and look. we have a friend who's had a lot of experience and we sit there with the moth book and camera identifying the moths. Coffee and crissants are essential to the event. 

bats are very low here this year, maybe the weather of the last year has been too much for them. our bedroom window is still covered with droppings and pee though.
