A record of wildlife in my garden and various trips to the Warwickshire countryside and occasionally further afield.
"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Fourth Birthday Today
Its hard to believe that I've been blogging for four years today - where does the time go?
I would just like to thank everyone who has visited my blog whether as a one-off visitor as a result of a google search on a particularly topic, an occasional or regular visitor. A special thank you to all those that follow me or who leave comments. Each and every comment is read and greatly appreciated.
As a matter of interest I've just checked the five most popular posts over the last four years.
1. Spring in the Garden - April 2011
2. Local Birding, Rare Victorian Pillar Box - November 2013
3. Twitching a Lifer - November 2013 - I suspect this is due to the post title!
4. Fossils Part 2: Orthoceras and Belemnites - November 2010 - no doubt due to Google Searches!!
5. Tour of the Hall December 2010
I thought to mark the fourth birthday I'd republish a few of my favourite butterfly and moth photos taken over the last 4 years
Gatekeeper or Hedge Brown
There are 59 species of butterfly which breed in Britain and over 2,500 moth specie have been recorded in the British Isles.
To show the diversity of moths which can be just as beautiful as butterflies I've randomly selected a few species of moth photographed over 4 years.
Buff Tip - what superb camouflage :)
Peppered Moth - often used to demonstrate natural selection in action
Welcome to my blog. I have been interested in natural history from an early age and we have tried to create a garden attractive to wildlife. I also enjoy reading, photography, collecting fossils, visiting historic buildings and gardens and supporting Aston Villa. Please feel free to leave a comment and, if you would like to email me, my email address is ciraggedrobinsATgmail.com - remember to replace AT with @. Thank you for visiting.
