On the pond were 7 Teal, 5 Mallard and a Tuftie. There were no Crossbills around today despite them being around the village wood since January. Last week I had 16 together with 6 still this week.
In the invert front, Kidney-spot Ladybird numbers are now up to 5 on one medium sized Ash tree trunk and nowhere else!
This afternoon I had a drive to Alnwick Moors to check for Orange Underwing moths at the spot we had them last April. It is still cool up on teh moors but I managed 2 individuals flying around the birches, unfortunately too high and actice for a photo.
While waiting for them A few spiders were found in the moss and litter on a flat rock -
|Corby Bridge Moor.|
|Xysticus cristatus female|
|Xysticus cristatus male|
|Pardosa sp Wolf Spider|
