Two things conspired to keep me at home today. One was the amount of top sport on the TV, and the other is that my car has decided not to start! As England are no longer in the World Cup, and my youngest grandson, Sam is currently proudly wearing his Espana shirt, while he and Rocio are visiting Rocio's family in Spain So Sam's Uncles, Aunts and cousins will all be celebrating tonight. I was pleased to see them get through, although the next match will be tough.
Scorched Wing (Plagodis dolabraria)
Each day is now bringing in a few interesting species and today one of my favourites was this Scorched Wing. I've always found the pattern on this moth fascinating, a real work of art, and this was a nice pristine specimen.
Maiden's Blush (Cyclophora punctaria)
This one is slightly tatty, but it is an good name, even if, in this immodest age we live in, it does seem an unlikely proposition.
