Squash N' Frost

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Tuesday 11 May 2010 17:47

Yesterday it finally seemed like it was warming up with my first Small Copper of the year at Woods Mill and this squash bug, Coreus marginatus. However, that all changed over night as there was a thick frost in the valley bottom field this morning. Taller plants such as Cow Parsley and Winter-cress were hit the hardest. I finished visit 5 of my 10 visit CBC there this morning it and was just like a late March day with Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Marsh Tits and Chiffchaffs all singing. There were only two Nightingales singing this morning too. I really hope it warms up for National Moth Night on Saturday.
