Garden watch week 10
70 consecutive mornings i’ve posted a different animal found in our garden during Covid-19 lock down here in the UK. Something that I envisaged running for around 30 days has now hit the 10 week mark and all the critters are getting smaller and smaller! I guess if i could ID every single fly and bug this project could run on for ever, but I can’t. So it won’t. There’s still a few birds missing and we’re a bit light on butterflies at the moment so lets see what next weeks weather brings.
The last 7 days are as follows:
70 days, 70 pictures.
Day 64 – Wool-carder Bee (Anthidium manicatum)
Day 65 – Wolf spider (Pardosa amentata)
Day 66 – Dichrorampha sequana moth
Day 67 – Poecilobothrus nobilitatus fly
Day 68 – 7 Spot ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata)
Day 69 – Oxyloma elegans snail
Day 70 – Common green capsid nymph (Lygocoris pabulinus)
Wool-carder bee, Wolf spider, Dichrorampha sequana moth, Poecilobothrus nobilitatus fly, 7 Spot ladybird, Oxyloma elegans snail, Common Green Capsid nymph
