I've added all the species seen so far on the right hand side and think I've just about caught up. It's nice that the invertebrates are beginning to show and I need to put an effort in this month to get some more and hopefully some new ones. The same goes to get the 130 or so more plants that I still need and know they should be around if I look hard enough.
The moth trap is beginning to come into its own now and looking at the overnight catch (which I haven't checked yet and just covered it over, as it's stotting down) I reckon I should have hit the 600 mark. I can see two new ones for the year just looking through the funnel.
Anyway here's a few pictures and let flaming June begin .... once it's stopped raining. I'm off now going to make a cuppa and check a few pots of creepy-crawlies thats in the fridge.
A few moths to start with - all nice big pretty ones
|Merodon equestris - The Narcissus Bulb Fly|
|Bogbean (Menyanthes trifoliata)|
and though outside the sqaure I love this field of Bluebells at this time of year
