Early Thorn - 2
March Moth - 1
Dotted Border - 1
Grey Shoulder-knot - 1
Early Grey - 3
Hebrew Character - 10
The Satellite - 1
Clouded Drab - 3
Small Quaker - 13

The Satellite...

...and another(archive), same species different colours!

Saw this little red mite when I was messing about with the moths, I remember these guys getting a hard time when we were kids because they were deemed to have blood sucking powers!

Mite sp. (or not)

Managed a snap of this buff/white tailed Bumblebee whilst out walking late this afternoon, but only because there were no birds to look at!
