I Can't Stand the Rain - Ann Peebles

With both rain and wind still prevailing there was just a glimmer of hope as the dawn temperature 'rocketed' from +6°C of the previous day to +8C° but there was little to show for it. It was the day before these 'balmy' heights were reached that
 FOUR-DOTTED FOOTMAN
graced the traps but all else was
of a slightly less usual nature
a 'dark morph'
CORONET
 ORDINAIRE
 for comparison
With these c10
EGYPTIAN GEESE
having now been seen on a daily basis by someone or other, it was
only yesterday that they were captured by the camera during the
early morning rounds of the Moth Traps.
 Something of a mild shock on the Parley Pond Island as at first it
was thought that there had been a 'young'
 ALPACA
added to the troupe, but no just looking 'half the size' after shearing!
 All on the Heath amounted to this lone
 MEADOW BROWN BUTTERFLY
and a singing

MEADOW PIPIT
 It is now thought that 2 pairs of
 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER
 have successfully bred behind the
Eco Recycling Facility
 as yesterday we recorded c3 adult birds in attendance with c5 juveniles.

Adult LRP keeping watch
 Unknown if LRP, or any other Wader, ever lay 5 eggs but thought unusual,
as 4 is the norm across the family, this number of youngsters alone points to 2 separate broods?
 While this industrial
HOUSE SPARROW
continued nest building

its mates were taking advantage of the bread scattered on the lawn.
Last night's returns from the
Trail Cameras
produced just two Species

MAGPIE
and

 Despite the deterrent, a strategically placed branch, something
persists in perching on the camera!
