I didn’t manage any wildlife watching today: I have a lot of major concerts over the next three weeks and so preparing for them is taking precedence at the moment! I did go into the back garden though to take some photos of bees on our “triffid” spear thistle.
Brenda writes: “I was mostly around home today. There was one new moth in the trap, a particular favourite, the grey dagger.
Today’s new flower was in the garden, hare’s-foot clover. Much smaller than either white or red clover, it has fluffy pale pink flowers.
Our bee orchids continue to flourish but sadly something decided the pyramidal orchid looked like a tasty snack, so it is no more!
New species for June 22nd:
Moths: grey dagger
Flowers: hare’s-foot clover
TOTALS TO DATE:
Birds = 203
Moths = 128
Wildflowers = 215
