I had almost forgotten to log that we recorded a baby grass snake sunning itself on Bank Holiday Monday - very distinctive white markings behind the head. It had possibly become disturbed when I was moving matured wood chppings to form a new path. In any case, a great addition to the garden list.

26/27 August 2017: total 135, Species 34 (Min 11.3C, Max 15.4C , wind 2mph NNW, cloud 0%, humidity 82%.) We took delivery today of 25 potted old English bush roses, all chosen for their scent. These have now been planted into a 35' prepared flower bed running alongside part of the new slate path, mainly in blocks of three to create a better effect. Another 30' run has been planted with Foxgloves, Red & White Valerian and Sweet Williams next to the upper apple orchard. All that remains to do in this area now is to move an apricot tree in the autumn, finish pruning the hedgerow and finish creating a new path into what our grandchildren call "The Jungle Walk", a densely planted bog garden with a lot of bamboo and native bog plants. Then next year the roses will be under-planted with Scabius, Salvias and scented Geraniums and by then probably a lot more!

My first Lime-speck Pug in Devon put in an appearance, and a second Red Underwing, most definitely not the same one as the other day, as that had a bit out of a wing.

It was more like being in a Costa Rican cloud forest than Devon, but the moths loved it, as did our resident Tawny Owl family, which seemed to be out in force. Nothing heard of the Little Owls though and no sign of any hedgehogs.

18/19 August 2017: total 227, Species 49 (Min 11.4C, Max 14.3C, wind 14mph WSW, cloud 40%, humidity 76%, heavy overnight rain). What a night! My second only ever Red Underwing turned up in all its glory. What a fantastic moth - if this doesn't get thr blood racing then nothing will. There was also the largest ever female Black Arches with two, smaller, males in attendance. What really surprised me was the fact that they appeared on such a windy night.

The Little Owls are back, as are a multitude of Red Admirals, with the odd Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock thrown in for good luck, all busy nectaring off the many butterfly bushes we have.

My neighbour Dan and his young daughter Amelia brought me a large caterpillar, which she had found. We thought at first it was a Lime Hawk-moth. On deeper research, however, it turned out to be an Eyed Hawk-moth. It was hard to tell at first, but size and the elongated large spots down each side appeared to be diagnostic. It was much darker than usual, probably a sign that it was about ready to pupate, and so it turned out to be. I filled a container with earth from the garden and within two minutes it had buried itself. We now look forwards to seeing it emerge next year as a full-grown moth.

After the storms and heavy rain, a scene of destruction in the garden, with branches littering the large lawn and the sweet corn, almost ready to eat, mainly flattened, but now staked in the hope of salvaging something to eat after all the hard work growing it. The coldest night for weeks, the only surprise being that there were as many moths as this after all that dreadful weather and which included one of my all time favourites, a Scallop Shell (only my third record) - see photo below.

17/18 July 2017: total 436, species 62 (Min 14.8C, Max 16.0C, wind 2mph S, humidity 77%, cloud 0%). Counting moths here in Devon reminds me of the 10 years spent on weekly butterfly transects in Sussex, when at this time of year upwards of a 1000 Meadow browns would pop up their heads to be counted. It was really tedious! So it has been recently with, at the moment, dozens of various Footmans (or should it be Footmen :) and Grass-veneers). So, my new strategy of merely noting abundant in the comments column in my spreadsheet really is saving me a lot of time.

In the meantime, a young hedgehog continues to puzzle our daughter's black lab and the garden is again full of butterflies, and a super-abundance of newly fleged birds, with even a few dragonflies making an appearance. One down-side has been our poor old House Martins. Having taken them 2 weeks to build a really lovely nest on the back of the house, they were immediately ejected by the blessed House Sparrows. They have not given up though, and are now attempting to build a second nest on the front of the house. May all good luck be with them!
