Constant heavy showers over the last six days means there is little to report on wildlife in the garden recently. Actually, Sunday was dry and sunny but the day seemed to be dominated by Newcastle hammering Aston Villa 6-0 (still shell-shocked!!).
I haven't seen a butterfly for days and I only get the odd sighting of a bird at the feeders as it dashes from cover braving the rain to grab a morsel of food. I haven't bothered running the moth trap as it has rained every night and my one and only experience of emptying a trap after a night of heavy rain (had to rescue half drowned moths languishing in sodden egg boxes) means I am not in a hurry to risk it again.
I shall be passing near Packwood House and Gardens tomorrow afternoon so IF its dry I will pop in and take a few photos.
Last night when my son arrived home he called to tell me there was a beautiful double rainbow and I just managed to grab my camera in time to take a couple of shots. The second rainbow had almost faded but the main one was still full of colour.
