Here's a video taken from in my bedroom. You'll need your volume turned up to get the right idea of the noise level.
On a lighter note look at this letter that Tesco sent us yesterday
The whole letter just to prove I'm not making this up
Yes it's true, they will be opening a VIEWING PLATFORM!
So that's good news for any anti-social local birders. Why? Because who ( apart from committed local patch workers) will be at Black Hole Marsh now, when they can visit the Tesco building site and watch sand and gravel being moved about. Sounds awesome! Roll up, roll up, bring the kids. Fun for all the family! I wondered if they have a sense of humour when I noticed the date the viewing platform will open?
Enough of that ****. Let's look at some nice moths. We've had three new moths for the garden over the last few days and a few others worth a photo. Firstly, the Water Carpet which escaped in my kitchen yesterday has now been officially declared 'missing presumed dead'. Fortunately we caught another last night.
Water Carpet. This moth has a lovely metallic sheen.
I think this new moth for the garden is an Early Tooth-striped. Not sure though.
This exciting looking beast is a Diurnea fagella
Three other moths that I think warrant a photo.
First generation Purple Thorn
Early Grey. This one's more like an early pink!
