Jolly Moth

Stopped by the Prees Branch canal to check the mink rafts, and found a water vole had been using it as a feeding station (those two manky old lengths of reed laid at an angle on the roof). There was also a footprint inside, which looked like water vole - very splayed out.
All along the canal I found odd bits of feeding, though not the huge feed stations there were in spring. There was quite a lot round this miniature island, third photo down.
Plenty of butterflies like this speckled wood, and this gorgeous large emerald moth (top picture).
