Recent Photos

Just a quick posting of a couple of recent photos. First is a treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) - common but not always easy to spot as they scurry over the bark of a tree using that dagger-like bill to find and skewer invertebrates:

And this is a brown tail moth caterpillar (Euproctis chrysorrhoea) with its distinctive twin red dots. Apparently these can cause quite serious infestations and are not therefore always welcomed by gardeners. I have not mentioned its appearance to the gardener in our household yet...
