The Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis

Still attempting to get the outstanding Moth Images to you
from all that time ago, While the weather still remains hot and sunny
with patches of heavy rain.

GRASS EMERALD
SMALL PURPLE BARRED
DARK SPECTACLE
ROSY MARBLED
and the fabulous
BEAUTIFUL YELLOW UNDERWING
all additions to the Year List when caught.
There was also a 'fairly scarce'
 STRIPED LADYBIRD
round about that time as well.
Off for the usual wander and
PHEASANT
for some reason have been keeping a low profile lately and it isn't
even the Shooting Season!
Yes, it's been here before but how nice when they are obliging for a change?
GREEN SANDPIPER
and a 'second'.
While not wishing to make a bee-line to the offices of those who oversee
and manage the Heath, it has for a while now been the intent to bring to
their attention the damage that the
FERNS
are doing to the Heath.
Far stronger and more prolific growers than the Heather,
in large swathes they are now taking over all before them!
Is it another case of
The Return of the Giant Hogweed
continue listening for the excellent composition that is
Firth of Fifth
 in my humble view the 'finest hour' for Steve Hackett
at the 'guitar break'! 
ENTER
TIM and ADAM
who had beaten me to the punch and were already spraying the invader.
However, these 2 young men had been encountered, but not met, before
and an eye was being kept out for them.
See Trail Cams.
On the way back a posing
CARRION CROW
and an update from the
Trail Cameras.

HIRUNDINES
(Swallow and House Martin)
feeding above the Balancing Pond Bird Exclusion Net.

By the looks of it this perfectly healthy
RABBIT
showed no fear when approached to point-blank range
 and then performed a series of acrobats worthy of an
Olympic Gold
(anyone have any theories about this kind if behaviour?)
 Nocturnal
COMMON BUZZARD 
seen in quite a 'different light'.
TIM
then
ADAM and TIM
caught in the act, no one gets away without being detected here!
