Recent garden highlights

I suspect the expected bumper crop of young from c.16 pairs of Treeps might not be forthcoming due to the cold spring and lack of inverts for the adults to feed their nestlings. Lets hope broods two and three make up for the lack of young birds around at present.

I dusted the moth traps down for only the second time this year. Nights still quite cool and only 22 species caught. A few highlights -
