    All in Warks. I'd hazard a guess at the first as Aethes smeathmanniana, but likely way out! The other 2 just can't find! Any help appreciated, many thanks

    Northumberland moths site

    I've used the excellent 'moths by larval plant' list many times on the Northumberland moths. org.uk site, but have just tried to get on and Norton has blocked it as being dangerous! Anyone know what has happened?

    fungi id, please

    These little fungi have started growing in a pot of strawberry plants! Can anyone id them, please? And are they likely to affect the strawberries in any way?! Don't know if they've sprouted from the compost (peat-free) or the barley straw under the plants. ( It's a 1cm scale)

    This is a video grab from a trailcam, so not too clear! I'm guessing this is a ferret... but could it be a polecat-ferret? Certainly the cam film always changes colours from what they would be in daytime, so too hard to call? (The film is too big to go on) Many thanks

    Brown Argus? Warks

    Just got round to reviewing July pics, and although previously thought this was Common Blue after just a glance, now I'm wondering if that was right! Any thoughts, please?

    I missed the first last Saturday, so watched on iplayer. Next one Saturday 13th 18.00. Well worth catching the 1st episode, superb film of dippers et al.
