A year on…

…and nearly 200 species photographed since Hagbourne Wildlife started,  I’m still finding new things just outside the back door; most are small, many nocturnal: click the thumbnails below for a bigger view of the nursery-web spider, another centipede,  a stretch spider, two rove beetles and an ant eating a mite. Meanwhile the niger seed feeder is proving a great success with the goldfinches, and the first lapwing I’ve seen round here for years flew over at the weekend – the fields used to be full of them at times.

We'll soon need a bigger feeder

  1. Good to see a picture of a lapwing, they were so common near my childhood home but the council built on their nesting grounds.

  2. Great pictures there, i don’t see many of them these days.
