A Painted Lady spent ages feeding on my Lavender bushes.
It never stopped moving so I only managed a few record shots.
The first I have seen since the last big influx in 2009
I have many House Sparrow families around the building.
Here a fledgling was being fed.
As I lifted the lid of my green waste wheelie bin I spotted
a small black beetle which I managed to photograph before it ran away.
Size about 8mm and much shinier than the photo shows.
So far I have failed to identify it.
