Family Affair - Sly and the Family Stone

Another night of occasional but heavy showers, not conducive with Mothing, but nonetheless a couple of items of interest. For the rest of the day I have been confined once again to the mundane, but as most things do, the strings now look like they are being pulled together? Away from the less interesting and seemingly flying in the face of latest statistics relating to decline in certain species of birds, today we recorded our 10th separate and distinct Cuckoo - let's hope numbers are on the increase!
These lovely people are the
 CONWAY FAMILY
(l to r Shannon, Faye, Noel and Leo front)
from Northampton.
It was my luck that they were close by when monitoring the Moth Traps this morning, and more particularly showing genuine interest and enthusiasm at the content. Leo had just returned from a Cub Scout Camp on Brownsea Island (where that organisation was first begun), returning with tales of Red Squirrel, Peacock, old Oak Trees etc so a budding Moth'er if ever I saw one!
FROM THE TRAPS
 COMMON WAVE#
 KNOT GRASS
 SETACEOUS HEBREW CHARACTER
my personal favourite name of all the Moths.
 HEBREW CHARACTER and SETACEOUS HEBREW CHARACTER
for comparison.
As I understand it, and not wishing to sound anything like an 'expert',
the name of both of these Insects derives from a letter of the Hebrew
alphabet. 'Staceous', they tell me, relates to 'bristley'. 
 LIME-SPECK PUG

The Micro
EUDONIA ANGUSTEA
also in a Trap
 7-SPOT LADYBIRD
LARGE GARDEN BUMBLEBEE (worker)
Will have to check, but believe this to be the 7th or 8th species of
Large Bee which seem to be happy coming to 'light'!
 Cricotopus Sp MIDGE
Spent some of the day just wandering the Open Spaces of 
East Dorset to find,
 COMMON STORKSBILL
 CREEPING BUTTERCUP
 GREEN-VEINED WHITE BUTTERFLY (male)
A passing
HERRING GULL
looked iridescent in the bright sunshine.
 COMMON WHITETHROAT
 lots of these in the hedgerows now!
 GERMANDER SPEEDWELL
 While one parent COOT patrols the Sea-Ways
 the other gets the nest in order for the Big Day.
PS - they have already been 'at it'.
 Passing Airliner looked good in a clear blue sky.
 PERENNIAL SOW-THISTLE
 Just lucky to 'snap' this
SEA VIXEN
 as it took off from Bournemouth International Airport
 WESTERN GORSE
For the interest of the Moth'ers amongst us.
CLOUDED-BORDERED BRINDLE
 (dark morph)
from one of my mentors,
and also from a Regular Reader a couple of smashing shots of
creature which are 'naturalised' here in Dorset.
 WALL LIZARD
note the amazing skin colouration.
 EDIBLE FROG
looks good enough to eat!
While from much further afield I had the great pleasure of an E-Mail
from my friend
VICKY CHENG
 in Taiwan
who tells me she is now a fully qualified Tourist/Nature Guide covering
the tiny acreage of her own country, mainland China and Mongolia.
What about that for a Local Patch!!
and finally from John Gifford, who I might just add has contributed to a number of the identification on this Post, a Global Warning!
Hi Paul
I have attached some info on an, as yet unwanted, alien visitor to our shores, Asian Hornet, has moved across parts of Europe, Spain, Portugal and France, it kills Honeybees, and it's sting has caused 6 deaths in humans, and as you are always out and about, well at present anyway, I feel you are the sort of person who needs to be on the look-out for this nasty little critter.
