Garden Moths and Books
I put out the moth trap last weekend - and trapped the following - all New For the Year
Oak Beauty (Biston strataria) - one of my favourite moths
Clouded Drab (Orthosia incerta)
Chestnut (Conistra vaccinii)
As always if any of my id's are incorrect please let me know. Overnight temperatures are forecast to be milder this weekend so will hopefully be trapping again.
A pair of Blue Tits are taking nesting material into the nestbox (which has a camera) and a Collared Dove visited the garden (a new species for the year).
Frog spawning activity went on for days - a good year for frogspawn :)
A Spring posy of flowers picked from the garden for Easter Sunday
Books (for Amanda)
I picked up a couple of book bargains at the Nurseries when I went looking for birthday presents for my friend last week.
The AA Book "Exploring Britain's Churches and Chapels" was greatly reduced to £6.99! In fact, I saw it at the same price yesterday in a National Trust shop. It features various churches region by region and has articles on features such as towers and spires. It's well worth buying if you are interested in churches.
This charming bee book was half price!
Will try and resist sneaky book purchases for a while and catch up on some of the books in my vast pile of "waiting to be read"!
