Just had my first macro moth of the year arrive, a lovely male Mottled Umber. He (females are wingless) was sat on the wall inside the laundry shed, I potted it up and shook him onto the window sill outside. This is how it landed

Spent yesterday afternoon digging up worms and bivalves on the beach (really low tides here at the moment) and was handsomely rewarded with a large Sand Gaper and several new worms. It was nicer than it sounds! Here are a couple of pics
|Blow Lug (Arenicola marina)|
|Butterfish (Pholis gunnellus) - well, almost looks like a worm!|
Species List as of 16th January 2017 stands at 231. I'll give a breakdown soon.
