Cuckoo Cocoon - Genesis

Once again from the 'Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' Album
and if you cast your eyes right you will note we have reached the
Mile Stone
of
HALF a MILLION HITS 
thanks to all those who made this possible!
Please pass on the Link 
The Bagsy Blog 
A day not of 2 halves, but more like of 2 ends! To start with the Traps produced a little more than in recent days with 15 species accounting for a total haul of 38 Insects. Of these c4 were new for 2015.
 WHITE POINT
 SALLOW KITTEN
 ORANGE FOOTMAN
and
 MARBLED BROWN
not to be confused with
 LUNAR MARBLED BROWN
(which we have been catching for a fair while now)
which bears a small, inverted crescent moon centrally on each wing,
hence the name.
 Of further interest there were 2 distinctive 'shade variations' of
MUSLIN MOTH
 (what significance this has, if any, is not known)
and a 'hand-net' caught
Antipadean Invader
 MUSTOMA NITIOALIS
The Middle game was given over to the Memoirs
now having reached 1979, in the edited form, and amounting to
301,782 Words.
Still a long way to go and many adventures to re-live!
It was 17:30 precisely, memorable as I had just got the dogs to snuggle around my cup of gruel, warming it slightly from the frozen state, and had decided to indulge myself in the luxury of 'half' a Croissants kindly donated by dear friends who know the predicament! They have got to last! It was then that the distinctive song of a Cuckoo was heard and it was close. Quickly, (OK use your imagination) arming myself with just the big camera I strode towards the sound flushing it from the top of an Ash Tree in the Harbins Farmhouse garden. Following up far more stealthily, having turned the Ghetto Blaster off c3 of these usually secretive and beautiful birds were, what can only be described as 'dancing' along the 5th fairway.
Loosing off a first shot at this one perched on a fencepost in
Janet's Paddock
it suddenly
dropped to the ground and started feeding.
It was risky, but decided to head back to the car park to collect
the Mobile Hide, Binoculars and small Camera.

Returning, all c3 were still there and between them put on the following display.
No more words needed me thinks!

More Boy? What do you mean More?
There was only ever enough gruel for one!
All else during the day had been fairly mediocre with photographs of
a young
LARCH

Just some of the timber cleared from 
MERRITOWN HEATH
SPIDER WEBS
 in the morning dew,
along with a few stills and a bit of footage of the days
