RE: Dukinfield (other wildlife)


Plenty of fungi in the front garden of next door but one, including my first sighting of Fly Agaric of the season.

The people here have only moved in quite recently so it will be interesting to see how often they mow their lawn!

I was in the queue this morning at Morrisons in Dukinfield when an insect flying close to the wall caught my attention. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Ruby-tailed Wasp, certainly not something I was expecting to see or maybe they are more common locally than I thought!

A Hummingbird Hawk Moth was buzzing around the honeysuckle in our garden this morning.
Also a Meadow Brown butterfly a few days ago.
Not seen either of these previously in the garden.

I checked the pond in the garden out this evening when I got home from work and it has plenty of frog spawn and mating frogs in it. I know the pond was frozen up until almost the end of February. It looks like they couldn't wait to get started!

A beautiful dog fox spent a few minutes in the garden this afternoon and then left us a rather unkind present!
