Little Old Wine 'Drinker' Me - Dean Martin

Having just experienced more than 24 hours of sporadic and sometimes
heavy rain and the wind, occasionally reaching up to 30 knots and visiting just about every
point of the compass bar the 16 we were hoping for, between
South East and South West,
expectations of a decent catch from the Moth Traps was not high.
NEVER COUNT YOUR CHICKENS
as despite all of that there were still some additions to the
Year List such as:-
LACKEY
 DRINKER
 the fabulously big and beautiful

LARGE EMERALD
EAR MOTH
plus yet another
  EYED HAWK-MOTH
We make no apology for the quality of the following images/footage,
as it is difficult enough for me to see a
video
WREN
 let alone get it in the view-finder
 and as they are juveniles to boot
video

 we consider it something of a privileged to have seen them.
Also in Harbins Farmhouse Garden along with the Wrens have been the
usual common fare:-
BLACKBIRD
 GOLDFINCH
 in waiting and
 on the feeders,
juvenile
BLUE TIT
 along with
video
a decent number of
COLLARED DOVE, 
video
 but no sign of any juveniles yet, and the odd
 CHINOOK
to shatter the tranquillity.
A little further afield we found our first
 LARGE SKIPPER
of the year plus a
SMOOTH SNAKE
which have, by and large, been keeping a very low profile.
