Heron and Large Emerald

In the ditch outside the house there were three young herons yesterday morning. Two flew off but one remained all day.  We fed it tuna in spring water which seemed to go down well and it has now moved off but how far and how well it will fare remain to be seen:

Yesterday afternoon between Brae and Inver on Raasay we spotted a Large Emerald Moth, well actually one and a quarter large emerald moths, there being a wing in a nearby spider’s web too.
