The Kids Are Alright - The Who

We have just enjoyed yet another splendid week-end of
mainly Wild-Lifeing, but all work and no play makes Jack a
U NO WOT,
so we made sure things were punctuated with a good deal of BBQ'ing,
decent wine, gay (not to be confused with homosexuals who STOLE the
word that used to relate to the 'vast majority' of us) repartee and airy badinage.
On one day alone, we took 374 images (of the same subject managing to salvage
just a single legible one) plus a host of video clips which we hope to bring to you
in the very near future.
 DUSKY SALLOW
 YELLOW SHELL
 ROSY RUSTIC
 BROAD-BARRED WHITE
and while these 'Hawks' have already appeared through these pages
this year, they are always worth showing again when we see them.
 PINE HAWK-MOTH
and a comparison between
SMALL ELEPHANT HAWK-MOTH (l) and
ELEPHANT HAWK-MOTH 
and at long last a 'first for the year'
 BALSAM CARPET
 which going by its dark appearance is from a 'Second Generation'
which certainly fit with 2016 when again there were no 'First Generation' Insects caught! 
DOR BEETLE
an occasional visitor to these pages would not have been shown again
video
save for the fact that is was found up-side-down.
In an attempt to right itself it showed a smart iridescent blue
thought worthy of a still and a clip and was released at the end of the 
performance on an even keel. 
There has been some conjecture over the past few days as to whether the
New Platform, constructed by the Little Grebes at the Irrigation Pond is in
fact a third nest or simply a 'raft'. All will be revealed!

Now showing a little more interest but still not totally sure.

Then a bit of a tidy up before a swim.

Reshaping the 'bowl' of the nest before
settling down.
And even more Good News as we arrived at the goat enclosure
 to see the surviving twin
BAGOT GOAT
still thriving and
video
SUCKLING
but at the far end another sight for sore eyes as another
 KID (A)
 had arrived
overnight.
We hope to bring you video clips once the new arrival gets mobile.
