The Safari put the moth trap on last night and only got one moth despite the great habitat around, a White Ermine which became a spider's breakfast - oops, that wasn't supposed to happen.A more concerted effort with the wildflowers gave us Leopardsbane
The lane outside the house has a crackin verge, on the 'other' side...why can't the verges back in the Fylde be left to develop like that instead of being flailed and sprayed to keep them tidy? The hedgrows are cut better too, on an angle but still a little short.
