I found this Moth at 1335hrs today on the N slope havin a kip; it’s approx 2.5 cms long and I have never seen this species before.
Prior to this I had my third run-in in about as many years on the top field with a fleeting glimpse of a Fritillary type species. This time was the briefest encounter ever so it’s perhaps prudent to pretend I haven’t typed this.
The pool at the end of the track where the mounds are has matured; let’s hope it don’t dry up. The best indicator of this was a male Broad Bodied Chaser which wouldn’t allow for a photo unfortunately. Also seen were two Pond Skaters and a Water Beetle.
Other species: young Roe Deer bottom of N slope.
