30 Days Wild Pan-species Challenge: Day 2

Day 2 of my challenge and I’m still on track.

Today, I visited Wells Woods in Norfolk and I noticed this moth fluttering about near the edge of the pines on the beach side. It’s the pretty, but common, Common Wave (clue’s in the name). I probably should have seen this species by now but they all count!

I also noticed this weevil that I believe is Philopedon plagiatum, also a new species for me. They are all around the dunes there (they are associated with Marram Grass) and they’re quite variable.

Other (non-lifer) highlights of the day included Sandwich Terns and this nest of Great Spotted Woodpecker.

    Such a delicate and pretty little moth! & that woodpecker poking it’s head out is so cute.
