Greenhouse foundations

No proper birding today, the weather didn't look too encouraging and the greenhouse is supposed to arrive tomorrow so I had to make the base for it to stand on - so a rather bad tempered day then, dropping a railway sleeper on my foot didn't help.

There was a Sylvia warbler tacking in the garden for a while this morning but I couldn't locate it, Blackcap probably. Siskins are still scoffing Niger, House Martins and Swallows paid a brief visit and that was about it.

Highlight of the day was Louise shrieking in alarm in the kitchen as she brushed a creature of her neck on to the kitchen floor, it turned out to be a Puss Moth caterpillar. It was replaced none the worse for its experience on a willow in the garden (food plant).

Other insects today included a Comma, Red Admiral, Meadow Browns (6) , Green-veined White and 10+ Large Whites.
