A Hazy Shade of Winter - Paul Simon

It was a refreshing change to stick the head out of the port hole this morning and not see a trace of a 'rain cloud', however the precipitation had been replaced by a stiff breeze. Notwithstanding that, it was a
 Colourful Sunrise over Harbins
 while the legacy of the past few days was a slightly swollen
RIVER STOUR
Luckily, regardless of the inclement weather the overnight temperature
remain in 'double figures' and there have been some returns from the
Moth Traps.
Starting with the UNUSUAL as this specimen, on size alone, had 
to be sent to Higher Authority for identification.
 Turns out that it is a runt and melanic form of
 WINTER MOTH
(new for the year)
 with the usual size being larger than the 5p coin shown.
 However, the first Insect out of the traps was the 'pink'
VESTAL
followed by the more yellowish variation and the image might 
have shown 3 but with clumsy fingers the other one escaped.
 Whether a 'migrant', like the above, or not remains unknown but
 SILVER Y
are still showing up from time to time, while the Micro
RUSTY-DOT PEARL
surely is an immigrant, as is another Micro
 PALPITA VITREALIS
It is thought that when the likes of Walt Disney Co dream up their fictitious characters
they must lean heavily on the Natural World as this just has to be a
FAIRY.
If Sunday was all about
 CHAFFINCH
 then Monday was all about
 WOOD PIGEON
Of the former, there had to have been a total of well over 200 up the Common,
while yesterday what can only be described as 'many hundreds' followed.
 PSILCYBE MERDARIA
is a tiny an attractive Fungi but there was something even more
'attractive' about today's little cluster which was only noticed during editing.
Each 'cap' bares the reflection of an equally attractive Outside Correspondent!
 That 5p coin has certainly come in useful over the past couple of days,
as we then found these c2 Snails clinging to this small piece of rock. Both are
 WHITE-LIPPED SNAIL
 but it was again the size that was found fascinating.
MARASMIUS 
species of Fungi was the last of the day to be logged,
video
but it was thought this short clip of the new
WATERCOURSE
maybe of interest to some,
chances are we'll be out there again manana!
CHEERS.
