Another Quiet Day

The rain kept everyone inside this morning. I was supposed to be heading up to Moyles Court to take the nursery school on a minibeast hunt, but surprisingly enough it was cancelled. I headed up there anyway as it was on route to the mouse release site and we had caught another mouse in the loft this morning. The children loved the wood mouse and were absolutely fascinated by it.

The moth trap contained all the usuals this morning with the addition of an extraordinarily high number of caddisflies. This dark mottled caddisfly was particularly stunning.

There was also 5 water beetles, all of which appeared to be of the same species.
