In the ditch

Ellen and I went for a cycle ride and then decided that a ditch full of Red Campion was a fine place to look for moths and other inverts.

Ellen quickly found a couple of Bembidions, (lovely, tiny little Carabids) that I rapidly lost again. Then she noticed all these micros in the buttercups; very nice.

391 Glyphipterix simpliciella Cocksfoot Moth

As we were grovelling around a familiar call came to my ears - "wet-my-lips" - Quail, excellent.
