Go to Top Strange Green Butterfly identified as a Moth

In my excitement of posting about the Small Emerald Moth yesterday, I forgot to mention that at just after 08:00 yesterday morning I took a photo of the apparently injured juvenile moorhen seen seen four days ago.

Injured Juvenile Moorhen

This time it was in the dinghy moored by the step in the new decking, holding its leg in what looks like an awkward pose. You can't help but feel it won't last long with an injured leg.

Moorhen Standing On Lilies

Today's picture is also of a moorhen, but this time an adult. From time to time I have seen them walking across the lilies, but this is the first time I have taken a photo that proves the lilies strong enough or the bird light enough for it to be true.
