Steve is continuing to find new species of moths for the site this week BROWN VEINED WAINSCOT and ROSY MINOR were added, 450 is not far away.
Sunday I actually did a butterfly count, not for anything in particular just that I often start one then get distracted and never finish it! I ended up with 85 butterflies in an hour and half of seven species just around the fields. The highlight was probably the 2 PAINTED LADY, the first I had seen at the castle this year.
Click on the pictures for a larger image, they seem a bit clearer when you click on them as well, I think?
