Another busy weekend with scarcely a lift of the binoculars. It was our village show on Saturday so all day was spent with that leaving today to have a bit of a rest before work tomorrow.
Still, the moth trap and garden always provides interest.
|The whole weekend threatened storms but we only had an odd heavy shower.|
|Above is a Scalloped Oak I was positioning on buddleia for a photo when a tiny flower bug came out to feast on the moths damaged wing! Very odd behaviour...|
|Rosy Minor, a late summer marker and my first of the year.|
|This boring looking one, is actually the moth of the weekend, being a Depressaria badiella. Its the 10th for Northumberland and the first since 2013. Its my garden second though...|
|Our Village Hall, venue for the coveted village show.|
|Victoria Sponge category...|
|The best photo this weekend was this tiny saucer of fruit in some light through the window, looking lovely...|
So now with August upon us, its getting time to throw off the summer shades and get back out birding!
