Are You Experienced - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Surely one of the great things in life is the magic of a New Experience, particularly of the GOOD kind, but even the Bad can have the benefits of teaching us a lesson. Yesterday, while tending the Moth Traps, suddenly something completely alien to me manifested itself in a most unexpected way and wasn't even noticed until some time later. Let's see if you can spot it!
Plucking what appeared to be a 'pristine'
 DARK ARCHES
 from amid the egg trays it was decided to photograph it on my palm.
The solution to the conundrum, if you hadn't already spotted it is
there for all to see on the center image. Look to the left of the Moth,
and there quite clearly is a smudge of DIRT, no doubt about it.
After all these years we now know just how it feels but won't be tempted ever to do it again!
The same can be said about BOREDOM, oh for just one hour
to know 'first hand' what that is like!
EVER ONWARD
with additions to the Year List which included
 as the name adequately suggests
BORDERED BEAUTY
 the diminutive
SMALL FAN-FOOTED WAVE
(this being the 200th Macro Moth Species of the Year)
and what looks likely to have been overlooked time and again this year
 RUSTIC
 if indeed it is one?
There was also a 'pristine'
LIME-SPECK PUG
but in the hands of the photographer????
it now seems a little tarnished.
En-route to the Irrigation Pond it was noted that the
 DOG ROSE
 is now in full bloom, while on the pond
 the first c2 of the
COOT CHICKS
have hatch with still a further c5 to go.
With the Little Grebes now seemingly gone from the Gravel Pit
the only entertainment lies with the occasional visit of a 
GREEN SANDPIPER,
absent today, and the 2 pairs of long-staying

TUFTED DUCK

with one of the males putting on a bit of a

and ending with a
SPLASH!
Due the amount of unseasonable rain of late the
 Tributary, which runs into the Moors River, and the associate
Airport Balancing Pond
still hold a decent amount of water considering the time of year.
 Yesterday, this attracted a 'pair'? of
 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER
which is not for the first time this year, but GREAT to see and hear.
Back on the Southern part of Parley Court Farm in the north-east corner
know as Hale, Solar Panel Construction is now complete putting an end to the
Final Phase IV of the Project.
During these works we have very much kept our distance, but returning yesterday
it was seen that the unavoidable disturbance has little effected the Wildlife with both
RED-LEGGED PARTRIDGE
video
 (a scarce species here)
video
LAPWING
and
video
STOCK DOVE
are taking advantage of the open areas that remain, strewn with weeds and seeds.
The 
IN-FLIGHT BLACK-BOX RECORDER FACTORY
construction continues apace with the north side already cladded.
The final manifestation of the day came while sat in the comfort of
Slight Return II
composing this Post a
video
GREEN WOODPECKER
decided to have supper right outside - and most welcome it was!
