On the ivy

I've been away on work again during the week, so nothing exciting to post about from the last couple of days but I've managed to sort out a couple of photos from a very brief look-see at an ivy-clad bridge nearby on Tuesday night. I'd nipped out to the garden to sort out the recycling bins for collection and noticed a Blair's Shoulder-knot feeding on a small overhanging ivy in the garden. Spurred on by this I went out with torch and camera to check down the lane.

It was cool, and only c9pm so I wasn't sure whether there would be much success. However I was pleased to find 2 each of Brick, Yellow-line Quaker, Red-line Quaker and Green-brindled Crescent, and single Dark Chestnut, Pink-barred Sallow, Satellite and Emmelina monodactyla. Not the best shots but you get the idea ..
