Well at last I have managed to get a post on, sorry for the long delay again, but this was due to a bereavement in the family. My wife's mother passed away two weeks ago, and the funeral did Not take place until last Monday so things seem to have been in limbo for a long time.
Anyway she was 93 years young and active right up to the day before she passed away in her sleep after a short admission to hospital.
So on to other topics, I did manage to get out on Wednesday morning with a trip up to Stithians Res, and though there were very few birds visible there was quite a lot of insect activity so spent a very enjoyable couple of hours poking around in the undergrowth.
Although still a novice at knowing what some of the insects are I do enjoy trying to identify them and this takes me a long time trolling through various books, and some only have Latin names so may not always be correct. (Still if you don't try you don't learn ).
