GMS Week 11
I ran the moth trap last night (minimum temperature 4.2 degrees centigrade) and yet again not a moth in sight!
There have been a few highlights in the garden this week though - Brian spotted a Bullfinch on the sunflower heart feeder early yesterday morning. This species is an occasional visitor to the garden (about once or twice a year) but it has never come for food before.
I saw my first garden Holly Blue a few minutes ago and male Orange Tips were in the garden on Monday and Friday.
Mrs Blue Tit is still incubating the eggs getting the occasional visit from the male bringing in food for her. Hopefully, we will have a "happy event" in the next few days!
A record-breaking night in Bedfordshire
