FIRE - Crazy World of Arthur Brown

While we do not wish to cause any 'Heart Attacks' we think it best to break the news gently to our Valued Readers, that this is the penultimate Post of the Bagsy Blog. No time now for reasons or explanations, but all will be revealed soon.
 Another
 and rather acrobatic
 CONVOLVULUS HAWK-MOTH
 which at times was even doing 'barrel rolls'.
 OAK HOOK-TIP
 HOVERFLY
Volucella pellucens
and while monitoring the Harbins Garden Trap
we found a first for the Autumn
 FIRECREST
Starting our rounds as ever at Parley Pond there was something
of a surprise as this image only features 3 of a total c28
 COLLARED DOVE
which it is hoped are representative of a successful breeding season here,
but feared more likely to be, like the above, a part of an Autumn influx.
 At the Irrigation Pond there was either the same or another
 REED WARBLER
while a hunting
 KESTREL
along with a 
 CHIFFCHAFF
were located further down the lane.
On the Heath, but more particularly on the newly turned earth
which is now the far more shallow
Balancing Pond,
 a number of Birds were found but only 2 obliging enough to afford a shot or two.
 WHEATEAR
 and the
 'young, pied'
CARRION CROW
 GRAYLING BUTTERFLY
was well camouflaged among the Gorse and Heather while a
 WILLOW WARBLER
seemed more that happy to allow a photo-call.
Finally, on a return to a previously BLANK
Gravel Pit

we found this little poser
