Only it looks rather like this Yponomeuta cagnagella. I think it would have been on a spindle tree.

The NW corner of North Uist is a jewel of conservation. One of the best places in western Europe for wildlife. Traditional crofting, and nature based tourism should be supported here, not industrial development!

Allium sphaerocephalon is great for pollinators and does not need any watering or other maintenance. It also self-seeds gently on my allotment but never gets in the way of other plants.

Have you ever been to the ? The islands are stunning, pristine, wild, & precious. A proposal is being considered to build a commercial rocket launch pad there! If you are as shocked as I am, please to discover how you can object. 🐝🦋🐬🦎🐳🦅🌿🌸

Yes that seems likely. Maybe thicker-leaved also. Mine was but might have been in its genes.

Here is a short, simple summary by on why UK “net zero” 2050 target is far from enough. Please read and share. Sending a signal that strong action is being taken when not nearly enough is being done, will most likely do more harm than good.

This description of a 'spiral dance' does sound like what I observed, except that it describes only two or sometimes three insects taking part.

Tricky to photograph but does anyone know about butterfly behaviour. 4 or 5 (but possibly up to 8 together at times) white butterflies fluttering together in a flock. Staying very closely grouped but moving relative to the ground.

Well after our discussion I won't squash them. These purple perennial kales are pretty resilient anyway and it will be interesting to see which one they eat the most of!

Looking at data, numbers for whites seemed to have dropped by about a third to a quarter over the last 40yrs.
