birds : Things are slowly moving through - very slowly. A few Willow Warblers, the odd Wheatear and now the sun has decided to come out, a few more raptors are about - Buzzard, Marsh Harrier and 2 different Peregrines over the house yesterday. But nothing uncommon seems to be around. Patience, patience . . . .

.

moths : Pretty ordinary in the trap with numbers well down for the time of year. So I decided on a bit of bush bashing around the Garenne instead and found at least 13 species of moth.

.

Argyresthia goeartella - this tiny, shiny white and copper-coloured micro were flying around Birch trees

.

Grapholita compositella

.

Comma - found on an Elm leaf by Herm harbour

.

nonsense : Anyone like to entertain three small children for the next 3 weeks?
