Back home and we have been welcomed back with plenty of bad weather. Cooler than usual and wetter than we would have liked, things have not been good for walking since our return. However, we haven't had to stray too far from home to get some good wildlife views, starting with the spectacular red Hawthorn tree outside our house.
In the Back garden, I spotted a species yesterday, which turned out to be another new 'tick' for my life list. Clinging to a conifer, this yellow insect is a Brimstone Moth.
The Hawthorn I mentioned above, is host to many birds - particularly as we have a fat-ball feeder there. Right now, we have lots of newly-fledged birds including Starlings and these, extremely cute baby House Sparrows.
