A few more bits

Before I post some photos from today, this news about the Orkney Walrus is exciting. Of course, Walrus has featured on this blog before. I'm sure there will be a lot of listers heading up to tick this bloated goofy blubber sack (the Walrus, not Dickson-Wright), which is preferable to the action of the finder who threw a stone at it to see if it was alive!

Had a bit of time in the garden after U12s football this morning, and a couple of hours in the square this afternoon. All very relaxing. Found some more new lichens, a couple of fungi and added some more inverts to the 1000 in 1kmsq list.

Eristalis tenax

Liocoris tripustulatus

Empoasca vitis

Agonopterix arenella

Scotohaeus blackwalli

Narycia duplicella

Phaonia tuguriorum - a slightly better photo than yesterday

Cheers Ben - found that Agonopterix roosting underneath bark whilst looking for spiders! Had a couple of moths in the trap last night though, would be nice to have a decent mothing year for a change.
