Cold Edge

This afternoon.
After a struggle I managed to find one Fox Moth caterpillar near the lower large dam. I have checked Ogden golf course several times this autumn without success - but I guess they will be there somewhere (?) Will try again if we get a  decent sunny afternoon as that's when they seem to appear !

I also managed to find what I think must be  Nettle-tap moths (6 or more) - they were nectering on flowers of garden mint growing wild in a very boggy area but didn't manage to get any decent enough photo's to post on the blog.
No Red Admirals today though there were 2 Speckled Wood's near the lower dam.
