Lords Lot Wood, Capernwray..

Just had a hours walk along the bottom path which leads close to the Clay Pigeon shoot and return.

As usual there was plenty going on with songbirds and warblers, eg: Garden Warblers, Blackcaps, Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs.

I found this beautiful scarlet coloured larva of the Yellow Tail Moth (see photo), sadly the orangy colour in the photo should have come out more of a crimson colour. It was feeding on a sort of privet (or similar shape) leaf.

This must be the best place on earth for the Bugle with really good strong tall, full flowers. Though they are definately now on their last legs...

Had all the usual regulars, plus one or two more which I have yet to identify...
