Thursday 28th June

Only a couple more days and we will be in the sunny month of July.
This wet weather does have some benefits, if not for us, it has brought out the common toadlets, they are all over the paths and are only the size of a bluebottle, only way you can notice them is when they move, see pic.
Another animal is the aquatic worm commonly used in medicine, the Leech, The ponds are full of them and this wet spell has drawn them out, plashing in the water seems to attract them, it may be a sign of a possible meal.
The other day we came across a Green Lacewing, they are very delicate and brightly coloured.
Came across four young moorhen on a fence, they always look out of place in trees and fences with there long legs and claws.
