They Only Come Out at Night - The Edgar Winter Group

The fine weather continues making for some of the best catches from the Moth Traps so far this year. For the last few mornings we have been accompanied at our task by the raucous and continuous cries of the local

juvenile
GREEN WOODPECKERS
(sound track)
 POPLAR LUTESTRING
 DINGY SHEARS
DOUBLE SQUARE-SPOT
 BLACK ARCHES
and
 SCARCE FOOTMAN
have all been caught for the first time this year, the latter here in
comparison with the far more numerous close cousin
COMMON FOOTMAN
Aside of the traps we have been finding
just a single example of 
 EVERLASTING SWEETPEA

and in one of the only remaining puddles of water
BLACKBIRD BATHING
On the Heath the usually abundant
APPLE TREE
is now showing a good amount of fruit while the
FERNS
have now formed a complete carpet over much of the area.

relieved at the bathing pool by a

Along the Sewerage Works fence the
WILD PRIVET
is also in bloom.

GREEN WOODPECKER
was now showing in person.

was with great surprise that yesterday we caught the second a nocturnal
