What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

Laurus nobilis, bay

I think the plant being discussed here is Prunus laurocerasus, laurel. Though who knows, we haven't seen it. But light green says the prunus to me

This is my first forum, I've never been into them before. I need to look around for some good ones.

Susan's post reminds me. We swap seeds on the forum. Don't worry if you've nothing to swap, an SAE will be OK. Not a lot going on at the moment though.

Lots of photos. Not very accurate records except for moths and that's down to the friend who does most of the ID work when we trap. I have listings for each trapping but have never collated it all. 

ID isn't my strong point. I spend hours with binoculars on the bird feeders, book in hand, eventually  working out that the new visitor is a reed bunting or a brambling or a coal tit. They haven't turned up yet this year, just the usual suspects; chaffinch, greenfinch, goldfinch, blue tit, great tit, greater spotted woodpecker and jay.

Maybe this will be the year of accurate record keeping Maybe

I haven't found the saponaria has wandered far but I can't get rid of it from underneath a euonymus. It's 'Emerald and Gold' and I don't like pink flowers on yellow bushes.

I shall have to count the butterflies in the summer. I was very short of blues this year.

Holly or common. Speckled wood were much increased.
