No scores on the door for this, but another nice Orange Ladybird find during Weekend 5 of the Patch Bioblitz challenge. It was awake and feeding on a Sycamore.
However, with much foraging, a few morsels were added to the pan listing smorgasbord....
From orange to yellow, the first Yellowhammer of the year was a most welcome addition, I was beginning to wander where they were.
It was hard work again in the wood, and aside from the Ladybird, pretty quiet, but a selective bit of bark bothering brought me 2 nice species of spider. Below is the aptly named Silk Cell or Bark Sac Spider. He was present in his little sack ( the second white patch from the bottom), when he was rudely enucleated and bought home for identification.
This was the result of a similar bark raid the previous day,
I'm lichen this for Evernia prunastri ...
and a double visit to this fungus satisfied me this was as suggested on ispot, Blackfoot Polypore
Having finally bagged a Rabbit ( well, flushed it), mammal number 4, and totted up a few bits and pieces, the total has tip toed up to 129. It may be a struggle over the next few weeks until a few more plants make themselves a bit more recognisable, and more inverts appear, but I am really enjoying the challenge.
