I was cheered up a little when on the front window today I found my 4th micro of the year,this being Epinotia immundana which is common in heathland, woodland and marshes throughout the British Isles. The larvae feed of the catkins of Alder and Birch.
Having made the boo boo of the day by leaving the CF card in the reader instead of replacing it in the camera after loading the micro I was perplexed why the shutter button wouldnt release and accordingly had to come back home.
As such I returned to Odiham Common in the afternoon to take a few Orange-tip shots which I dedicate to my lovely sister Sue in Cornwall. I nearly achieved a good pair,but we have all done one of those,havnt we?
Count for the visit was 7 Orange-tip male & 3 Female plus 2 Peacock
