RE: Bits & Bobs, Odds & Sods (other wildlife)


Park Bridge Bio Blitz a rewarding if damp day. Personnel highlights- Knotting Gall, Royal Fern, Marsh Pea, Wood Sage, Valerian, Sunflower, Common Toad, Gatekeeper, Small Skipper and loads of Ringlets. Birds were a bit sparse with Dipper, Chiffchaff, and Blackcap.

3 Purple Hairstreak Butterflies in Rochdale. I think these are more common than is thought. The problem with these is they are hard to see because they like Oak and live in the canopy. Managed to get quite a passable picture.

River Tame near Dunkirk Wood

Had a quick visit here around lunch time to check a muddy pool in a field that may be a decent spot for passing waders, nothing so far, it might turn out to be a dud but on the river a nice surprise was around 10 male Banded Demoiselle all in the same area. A superb sight, and only a couple of minutes walk from the car park.

4 Evening Primrose plants in a compound close to Clayton Hall tram stop. The first time I recollect seeing these in the county or away from the coast.

A large brown moth in my kitchen identified as an Old Lady moth. Name given due to the brown markings on wings resembling an old victorian lady in a cloak. Book says it's common and commonly finds it's way into houses!
