Garden wildlife sightings


Hi there. Just wondering if somebody can ID the two green beetles feeding on hornbeam in my back garden near Radcliffe, Bury.

At least half a dozen Diamond backed moth in garden this evening. First time I have knowingly seen these but millions arriving all over country last few days.

Hi Jamie. I think most people posting their moth sightings are doing it on the relevant thread as they do with other species.

Am I missing a moth trapping thread somewhere? I know others on here are up to it!

I've had a pair of Oak Beauties, and singles of common quaker and Hebrew characters this week.
no micros for a while, though Epiphyas postvittana a fairly common catch over the winter as well as the locally interesting Tachystola acroxantha.

Cheers,

I opened the back door to let the dog out last night to find a young (not quite fully grown) Hedgehog wandering about a few feet away from the back door.
First one seen in my garden for a few years.
