Last lot from 10th


Cranesbill
Geranimun
Geraniaceae


Garlic Mustard, with as yet unidentified insect.


Perennial cornflower
Centaurea montana



Albion School Bridge sculpture
Unfortunately I arrived when the sun was in quite the wrong direction so this is a very poor photograph of the new bridge sculpture, but I'll redo it shortly. Details of two of the flowers, the theme of this bridge, are shown below

Hi Andie. I think the moth is a A Micro moth (Micropterix calthella), like my pic 10th May 2009 – Last few from yesterday .

I like the new bridge sculpture, will have to go have a look.

(I am a total beginner in moths, so please bin this comment if it's rubbish.) I searched at UK Moths and found one ressembling a species I'd seen down here on the IoW and came up with a male Adela reaumurella, and wonder if yours in the second photo might be the female? Shown here...

The pics there of Micropterix seem to have shorter antennae?

Thanks guys - I'll try to get a better photograph next time! It could be either from the one I took.

I'll be posting a new one in the next couple of days - probably a moth but I'd be grateful for any feedback about a possible identification.
