When Will I See You Again - The Three Degrees

It was with great delight that we welcomed not one, but 2 protégés to the Moth Traps yesterday, and while at this time of year they are not brimming over with Insects (the traps that is not the protégés) there was at least something to see, so a gentle introduction to the subject.
NIKI and CHLOÈ
(When Will I See You Again? - next Wednesday!)
The undoubted favourite with the ladies was
ANGLE SHADES
with Niki wanting an image to take home with a view to committing it to canvas.
also on veiw were
 DARK SWORD-GRASS
STRAW DOT
 PINK-BARRED SALLOW
 PALE MOTTLED WILLOW
along with a creature caught yesterday.
Once restricted to the strip between the Rocky Mountains of the USA
and the coastal fringe of the Pacific Ocean, this destructive Beetle can
now be found across much of the World.
 WESTERN CONIFER SHIELDBUG
(it's a new one on us)
 The antics of a
 COMMON BUZZARD
 Up ahead, a stirring in the grass
 brought into view
 a couple of possibly 'late'?
 PHEASANT CHICKS

 along with their Mum.
 With nothing at all to report from the Heath either, on the way back
 the sky seemed to be filled with southbound Hirundines mostly
 HOUSE MARTIN
(maybe as many as 2-300)
which must have been overlooked in previous years as our records
tell us that this is a new Species here for the ongoing October List!
 along with a lot less
SWALLOWs
this could be the last we see of them for this year?
When Will We See You Again?
and for what they are worth, here are the first returns from the
Gravel Pit Trail Camera.
