Heralds- I counted 39 hibernating
Spider sp? (debating id on i-spot)
Orb Spider Metellina merianae
The tunnel- an irrigation pipe under the railway
Left to right: Scarce Umber and Mottled Umbers
Checked out the moth tunnel yesterday and as it was relatively mild had the trap on last night. Got Scarce Umber and 2 Mottled Umbers (first record for Beddington) but no December Moth yet which is what I am after.
39 Heralds, the Buttoned Snout and a load of spiders in the tunnel. This hibernation colony was found by Derek Coleman about 10 years ago and 39 is a good year.
