Moth trapping been a complete lost cause so far this year, but this morning FIVE moths in the trap, including this tiny thing the size of a 5p piece. By my reckoning it's a Yellow-barred Brindle, only the second I have seen here, and one from the farmyard at Winklands 3 years ago
"Our" swallows have been to and fro according to the weather. Each time it's been lousy and they disappear for long periods I get all paranoid, but so far they have come back each time. She has been busy gathering wet soil from the garden, the while the male sits around singing and posing. This last 2 days I'm sure eggs are being laid, yippee!
