I have however found some interesting things that I would like to share. In a hedgerow near to home I found some White Campion, which I have never found in this area before. Red Campion is abundant so I was really surprised to see the white variety. However I also found a really interesting hybrid red and white flower! Quite cool I thought!

Another interesting find was this insect skin/casing. I found it on a riverbank and it looks as if this was a nymph or a larval stage of something and it has shed its skin and possibly flown or scuttled away!

An interesting moth find by a friend in her garden - An Elephant Hawk Moth - how envious am I?!

I have found all sorts of interesting things this summer so watch this space and hopefully I will get more time to blog and play catch up. In the meantime get out there and see what you can find before the summer is gone! Enjoy.....
