Heart of Oak - William Boyce

As turmoil continues right across Laptop-ville, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with things leading us to fall further behind by the day. These images and others that follow on subsequent days are not necessarily those of yesterday, or the day before, in fact we have lost touch with dates altogether and have no ambition to go searching the 'properties' of each image. Suffice to say that all will be of recent history and exact date of little importance to our Readership, save in the event of something unusually out of season, when we will append the date.
This was Thursday in fact when at dawn the temperature had plummeted
to a chilly +1°C which led to the first outing this end of the year for the
'keffiyeh' (Arab scarf) and the continuation of transforming into winter plumage,
check the facial fur!
The Strange Rover lay frozen
complete with embellishments while the
collars on all of the traps had a Vermeer of ice on them too, "no missus
not veneer as Johannes himself popped over and slapped on a coat"!
As the
HOUSE SPARROWS
looked down from above we plucked yet
another good Moth from a trap which is also an addition to the Year List.
OAK RUSTIC

and despite the northerly airflow and accompanying
decline in overnight temperatures we are still catching
BRICK
CYPRESS CARPET
We haven't posted a Micro Moth for a while now but there
are a few
RUSTY-DOT PEARL
on the move, and just like the proverbial No56 bus
'once one arrives'
RUSH VENEER
none of which are unusual for the time of year.
Another example of the very varied
HARLEQUIN LADYBIRD,
there is a small plague of them here across Dorset at the moment,
 and only slightly larger than the above a tiny
GARDEN SNAIL
On the Heath still at least one
SLOW WORM
not gone into hibernation.
Those of you of a more squeamish nature might like to look away now
as we show just a few of the results from the Trail Cameras.
It was thought a waste just to leave the
ROE DEER
carcass to rot when it can produce sustenance for Birds,
OK only Corvides
but we've all got to live

CARRION CROW
MAGPIES

and we do rather like to show nature in the raw.
and with a similar end to our last post
this time it's a clip of c3 together

GREEN WOODPECKER
feeding just outside of
Slight Return II.
