Day 35 in our garden

Just 3 photos for Day 35 in this series where I have been looking for things in my garden or things I can see from my garden. All 3 are in the garden.

The header image is a repeat, a Coal Tit. This one is looking for spiders or spider’s webs in the space between bricks of our house. This “join” has a strip of wood in it that used to have a gate post nailed to it. I assume it dates back to when the house was built in the 1960s.

This is a tiny moth, about 7mm long, that I saw fly from the Choisya to the Buddleia. To help with ID I found Moth Tips 3 PDF on-line here at the Open Air Labs (OPAL) website that guided me to the Gracillariidae family and then Gracillaria syringella. But, as always, if you know different – let me know. The caterpillars feed on ash, privet and lilac. Next door have a Lilac.

This is a Bugle (Ajuga reptans) quite small but colourful just under our front window. It was planted by us about 19 years ago but keeps getting crowded out.

Here’s Day 34 in our garden.
