I thought this was most unusual, a bright green moth settled on our patio doors we think it is a Large Emerald if anyone know different please let me know, I have never seen one like it before could it be rare? Help and comments very welcome. Here is a picture taken from in doors showing the underside, if you click on it and view the larger picture you can see that it has bright red eyes and long feelers.
I live in a small village tucked way in the Essex countryside, and we have many visitors to our garden. The Gray Squirrel has completely taken over in this part of the world never the less he provides lots of entertainment, as do the birds that visit our feeding area, here is a Collar Dove who regularly visits with his wife, very pretty gentle birds.
The local park provides great entertainment for the grandchildren not only swings and roundabouts but a football field and wild walks through woodland and fields with neck high (if you are three feet tall) grasses and wild flowers. We came across these lovely fungi no idea what they are someone may be able to tell me, also plenty of thease, we will never be late home for tea when we tell the time with a dandelion clock. One last little fellow we must not forget, we found him limping along the road and making a dash for the neighbors drive way, we used to see hedgehogs all the time years ago but this is the first one I have seen for years, we tried to catch him to see if we could do anything for his leg but he ran away so fast I think nature will cure it’s self!
There is plenty more I can tell you about where I live but I fear yo will get so bored, more another time
So come walk with me through the pleasant county of ESSEX
