I Know What I Like in Your Wardrobe - Genesis

It would seem that October inherited everything bad, weatherwise, that September had to offer on day one but things certainly perked up yesterday Unusually, we had company at the Moth Traps during the week when my new protégé, bee-keeper and upholstress Chloé Norian joined me for the usual rounds. In fact this is her second visit and to be honest it was amazing to find that she had remembered more than 50% of the Moth names so feel the tables may well be turned inthe near future! See everyone isn't as thick as me.
On the strength of that it was Chloé who opened and sorter
all but one of the traps.
 Best in Trap today was this

 RED UNDERWING
but there were also a few other most interesting Creepy Crawlies
HORNET

ROVE BEETLE
 CRANE-FLY
(more familiarly known as Daddy Long-legs)
FOLDED-WINGED CRANE-FLY and on the outside
BLACK SLUG
 With the numbers already arrived, it looks like it could be a bumper year for
 JAY
 SMALL-FLOWERED EVENING PRIMROSE
 and also mobbed handed of late
 juvenile and adult
 STARLING
 At the Airport the tributary has now got
 Water and some of its Flow back, but all else on the Heath only included this

SMOOTH SNAKE
which may well be the last before hibernation sets in.
Roy writes to tell us that this is an
AIRBUS A340-300 VIP
Longhaul business jet which carries 100 passengers with the company based in Malta.
That's about the time my little man comes around to cut the grass.

As the sun beats down I lie on the bench,
you can always hear them talk.
'Cus me, I'm just a Lawn Mower,
You can tell me by the way I walk!
and I know what I like and I like what I know  
getting better in your wardrobe, getting one beyond your show.

A cue for the
video
BLACK-HEADED GULL
and
video
PIED WAGTAIL
to drop in for dinner.
Fianally, and long overdue, we would extend our 
THANKS
to John Gifford who as ever has been instrumental in
identifying a number of our Creepy Crawlies and Others.
