Jamie found this freshly emerged Angle Shades moth hiding in the door frame of out main staff door this morning.  It was obviously still pumping up those beautiful wings so we kept an eye one it once it was moved to a warmer, safer sunny spot.

This initial picture by me was at 0932

And just five minutes later Louise took this shot with the wings nearly there!

I popped back at 1115 and she was still there in all her splendid glory...


And some sightings for the day...
