Ffos Las sightings
Bad weather and other commitments have prevented me from walking the full Ffos Las circuit for a few days, so this morning's sun was a great opportunity to get the walking boots on again. As I feared in my last post, the mystery cocoon will forever remain a mystery as it had vanished completely, but I saw other things to delight and surprise.
These two snails obviously haven't read the gardening books which say to but sharp grit around tender plants as slugs and snails wont cross it. They were both high up a prickly thistle!
I can't find this moth in my reference books. It appears to have a single faint spot on the wing. Any ideas please?
This silver-Y alighted on several leaves before waiting long enough for me photograph it before flying off.
I saw my first common darter today. This is a female.
