 Windy, sunny, cool, heavy shower this afternoon.

The weather did little to encourage me out today.  A walk to the pond with Bunty was notable for its lack of interest! 6+ Chiffchaffs were seen including 4 singing birds. I managed one snap of one low down along the lane...

I tried to check some mature birches for Orange Underwing, a day flying moth, after being spurred on by Dean but this habitat doesn't seem quite right. I have some better sites in mind for when we get some more suitable weather.

A few flowers brightened things, including Lungwort and Common Scurveygrass ( oh dear that is scraping the barrel).

Now that the light nights are here, hopefully there might be more to see... Oh I almost forgot. Snow forecast for Tuesday night / Wednesday morning...

Good luck with finding/seeing the Orange Underwings, Stewart.

Yep, looks like a spanner as been thrown in the works, for the weather this week.
