I'm going to try and do the BBC Springwatch challenge and post one photo a day for 100 days on their facebook page. This one of the Poplar Hawk Moths fuzzy face is my day 1 photo #100DaysOfNature.
We also found a Black Sexton Beetle, also sometimes called a Burying Beetle. A big black beetle with orange blobs at the end of it's antennae. Apparently they're the undertakers of the bug world and look for dead birds and mice. They dig holes underneath them, so the body falls into the hole, then lay their eggs and raise their young on the body.
|It has a bit of a scary face, when it looks up|
There were lots of other moths, including a couple that we hadn't caught before; a Drinker moth and a Poplar Grey.
