Is it just me or is there a bit of a lack of butterflies this year in the UK? Our Buddleia is blooming, and yet there are hardly any butterflies around. Perhaps it’s the weather – not especially warm and certainly not very sunny at present. It seems to be…

Seems a bit down on last year, though seen more variation this year and also less of the more common ones like he cabbage white, which only saw first the other day. Still expect more later summer.


Also been more bird's this year, leasts crows and magpies and bats in the evening slightly more than lasts year.

Still less mosquitoes than last year, so bonus.

Finaly blackberries seem more spread out seasonally and eaten plenty already past few weeks and expect to still find them up to mid autumn like last year.


Was expecting the flying ants last week, but soon, though few days of rain and last hot spell had an odd pressure change in that was often falling, so expect that may be key factor with the ant's as always in general an indication of rain ahead, but not always.

I was looking through recent photos thinking about what would be suitable for this week’s photo challenge and it was going to be all about insects but then I realised I had some perfect examples of partnership in photos of my daughter, Abi, riding. The…

If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear this was a Bumblebee… what about you? The trick to telling that this is not a bee is to look at his eyes. See how big they are? That’s because he’s not a bee, he’s a Hoverfly. Specifically the Bumble Bee mimicking…

It seems to be the start of Grasshopper Season. I spotted quite a few tiny little Grasshoppers jumping about in the grass just over a week ago. Maybe they will have grown a bit next time I take some photos of them.

I’ve been excited to find fresh damsels emerging lately but yesterday I hit the jackpot! I was wandering round the village pond seeing what I could see when I stumbled upon this little lady (at least as far as I can tell, it’s female). I was so excited!…

I discovered by chance today that it is National Moth Week at the moment. This seems to be an event mainly focused in the US but it has spread and there are various events across the globe. This made me think of the other day when I saw a moth I had never…

It’s been a while! Sorry to regular readers. I went down with some kind of virus and wasn’t up to much for about 10 days, which seemed to trigger more anxiety than usual, and then going back to work this last week has been exhausting. To top it off I had…

We have a pink theme going on in nature at the moment it seems. These are some pink flowers I spotted at the weekend between rain showers.

It has been a little too warm for me lately. I am not very good with heat. These guys, however, were delighted. Meet Mr and Mrs Lizard, enjoying a spot of sunbathing at Cors Caron Nature Reserve a week or 2 back.

Today I spotted a butterfly I’ve not seen before. I went for a walk at Cors Caron nature reserve and while passing a Bilberry patch I noticed these little green butterflies fluttering about. It turns out they are called ‘Green Hairstreak’ butterflies.…
