A walk at Northside on Saturday. The mission was to check on the Arctic Terns on Skiba Geo. Maybe twenty pairs looked to be on the rocks, we'll see what happens. Several Bonxies went by but not much else of avian interest.
Thrift, scurvy grass and The Brough
Dandelions and waves
Lesser Celandine and silverweed
Shiny woodlouse (Oniscus asellus)
A Trombidium sp mite (thanks LJ for id), a big very bright thing.
The moth trap had added a couple of new species for the year, White Ermine and Silver Y.
Gastrophysa viridula the green dock beetle, found all over the place at the weekend.
