GMS Week 8
Still not many moths around! Grand total of 2 Hebrew Characters in the moth trap this morning. Minimum temperature was down to 0.3 degrees centigrade.
I did find a new moth in the garage last week - New for Year and a New Species for the Garden
No photo - it was very lively and even, after being put in the fridge for a few hours, flew off as soon as I opened the pot. Imagine a plume moth similar to my favourite Emmelina mocondactyla but with dark markings on the wing and body.
First sighting of 2 Common Newts in the garden pond today and first garden butterfly of the year - a Peacock.
Mrs Blue Tit is making good progress with the nest and I think we may have the first egg next week :)
Primrose Weekend at St Patrick's Church, Salter Street, Earlswood
I visited St Patrick's this afternoon and, if you live near Solihull, Earlswood, it's well worth visiting the church tomorrow when the Primrose weekend continues between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. There are tours of this beautiful interesting church and the churchyard is full of primroses and Spring Flowers.
I'll do a post on the visit in a few days.
Many thanks to Tony who advised me of the event.
