Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

A bit of this and that

Overnight the moth activity was frantic, with a decent mix of species this morning. Clouded Silver, Small Magpie, Freyer's, Tawny Speckled and Lime-speck Pugs all new for 2015. Some more micros for me to ponder over, although with fishing season rapidly approaching, I won't be dwelling too long on these un-id'd creatures. I have photos and the entire Winter to continue my learning process in this particular sphere!

Coptotriche marginea (?)

 Benno, Luke and myself took a wander along The Stour, this morning, looking for likely areas where we might be able to intercept a barbel, or two? Unbelievably, we actually saw nine fish during our sortie - a group of five engaged in some fairly hectic spawning activity; it's looking good. A great deal of other wildlife to be enjoyed included a decent variety of Dragons and Damsels, Scorpion Flies, a couple of singing Nightingales and best of all, singles of Slow Worm and Grass Snake. Great stuff.

An absolute privilege to get up close, and personal, with this creature.
