Quick post, June 20th

I didn't manage to get out this weekend but I was checking the moths from 4.15 this morning in the pouring rain!! There were just over 200 moths in the traps of 44 species. New moths for the year were few and far between but there was a nice Swallowtail and a Scalloped Oak, otherwise 57 Heart and Darts made up the bulk of the numbers with a fair few Uncertains (yes, that really is the name of a moth!!). By the time I finished the moths around 6am, I was pretty wet and cold, so decided to go to work early as I had a busy day ahead. I did hear SPOTTED FLYCATCHER, GOLDFINCH and COMMON WHITETHROAT while I was checking the moths but that really was about it!! Hopefully I 'll have more to report tomorrow, I don't think it could be much less!!!

Tough times for us patch watchers Alan - and we have July to get through yet! Although at least that month does throw up the odd early migrant :-)

Full marks for dedication Alan... 4:15am in the pouring rain!!

I thought at first (by Uncertains) you meant there were some you couldn't identify but then the penny dropped, I do love these moth names :)

Hi Warren, Tough times indeed! I'm still hoping a Med Gull comes my way and as you say the early Sedge and Reed Warblers will be on the move in a few weeks :-)

Hi ShySongbird, I haven't decided whether I'm dedicated or daft!! :-)

Uncertain had me confused (Confused, another moth name!!!) for a while, it's a fairly non- descript brown moth, the names are great though :-)

Сейчас, в разгар жаркого лета, когда за окном +30 и так хочется насладиться прохладной водичкой, самое время поговорить о бассейнах. Бассейны-инфинити, растворяющиеся в безбрежном океане или в небесном пространстве, поражают любое воображение. Концепция бассейнов-инфинити возникла во Франции, но в настоящее время бассейны такого типа можно встретить лишь в роскошных отелях самых престижных экзотических курортов мира, так как технологию устройства таких бассейнов нельзя назвать дешевой. Наиболее яркое впечатление производят бассейны-инфинити, расположенные на холмах или на склонах холмов в окружении зеленой растительности, и те, что обращены к океану, сливаясь с его бесконечными голубыми просторами.
