Kitten, bee and other friends

In recent days I have been super busy getting prepared for my PhD viva (tomorrow, wish me luck!). Therefore my wildlife experiences were again reduced to non-birds. My urban bathroom continued to deliver relative quality, in the form of Small Clouded Brindle last night. It waited in the bathroom till the morning, then I took it out to the garden for some modelling.

A few nights ago two less-common and very welcome visitors entered my bathroom - Small Blood-Veins:

Large Ivy Tortrix was another new #bathroommoth:

Today while waiting for my car to get MOT'd, I paid James a quick visit for a cuppa and some moths. James trapped several fine moths this morning, and I played around with two. Sallow Kitten is one sweet little pussycat. Sadly one wingtip was broken.

Common Emerald is an attractive moth too

The single Bee Orchid growing in James's garden is looking fine
