997, nearly there

It's been more than a couple of weeks since the last post but the list for the fell for the year is pottering on, despite mean having been poorly recently. Thanks mainly to the moth trap and now that the fungi are starting to appear I'm nearly at that magical 1000 mark [though a few of the most recent species actually go back to July but have been waiting to be identified].

Feathered Thorn & Green-brindled Crescent

Still a few butterflies about with Small Copper, Speckled Wood, both Large and Small White as well as Peacock, Red Admiral, Comma and Small Tortoiseshell being seen the last few days.

Small Copper & Speckled Wood

It is now feeling like autumn and as well as  the autumn moths appearing in the trap, 3 Redwing flew over despite the House Martins still feeding young in their nests in the town centre.
