Mothing remains dismal, I beginning to despair that it will ever get back to normal. Last nights catch was just seven moths, in 2010 on the same night I caught 73!
At least a couple of fresh Rustic Shoulder-knots were nice to see. Not particularly colourful, but the name has a certain ring to it!
At Coldred I stopped to see if the Man Orchids had put in an appearance and at last I was rewarded. I didn't do a thorough count, but so far there didn't seem to be many out on the roadside bank. This is 26 days later than last year when the Orchids were at about the same stage.
As well as spreading a few peanuts around the lawn, I normally put a handful in an old ice cream tub. That way I can get the badger in a good place to check his ID. I was surprised this morning to find a Badgers Poo in the box. Either he doesn't approve of his peanut diet, there were no extra tit-bits last night, or it was a late arrival who found the cupboard bare when he got there and registered his disapproval!
