Some days, the creative juices for a blog item, will not flow. Perhaps it's the continuous grey cloudy weather that seems to merge one day into the next.
I suppose the measure of what has been done in a day and how news worthy/exciting that is, could be judged by - is it worth blogging about? As far as today is concerned, in the main, NO! Food shopping and various domestic activities - WOW!
More tidying up in the garden and this time the pond came under scrutiny. Which was good - four common frogs were coming up for a breather and, having felt something cold and wet next to my ankle, I looked to find a toad keeping me company.
A red dragonfly took a rest beside the pond and, sweeping over and around was a larger relative - think it was an Emperor (no picture though!)
Throughout the morning, a moth has slept on on the lounge wall and is still there waiting for dusk.
So despite the fact of not going wildlife hunting away from the house, not a bad catch. Of course, my usual garden birds were about including today a female Great Spotted Woodpecker.
Common darter I think
Closest I can get to an ID is - Brimstone Moth but there's something about it that suggests it's not!
And - it's not. It's a Yellow Shell - thanks to Steve for the ID
