Week 28

Not much to report this week no visits out due to work and family commitments but the week saw the arrival of a new baby my Pentax K-r DSLR camera > Review but the new macro lens didn’t come mix up, so hopefully next week a deicated macro lens will appear, so I have to make do with the kit lens which is okay ‘ish but no where near as good as a dedicated lens so I have been getting used to the feel of the camera, finding my way around it etc etc.

The wildlife this week has been quiet but I have had my first Gatekeeper butterflies this week along with the ususal Meadow Browns, Ringlet, Green-veined Whites, Small Skippers, Commas, Large Whites, Small Whites, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshells. This week has also given me a new Moth species in the form of a Swallow tailed Moth (see photo) and the bad news this week the local farmer has cut my butterfly field down so I am hoping I will find similar species but now I will have to look in a different location
