Catch-up Time

A family expedition to Brochel at low tide produced this fine fish under a rock:

Cornish Clingfish Lepadogaster purpurea (Taxonomy appears to be unclear between this and L. lepadogaster)

Yesterday, walking to the south of the River Drynoch I spotted this proliferative Dactylis glomerata (Cock’s-foot). This is a known phenomenon in this grass, see e.g. here.

Proliferative Dactylis gloerata

Nearby there were two Light Knot Grass caterpillars

Light Knot Grass Larva

and a couple of adult Shaded Broad-bar moths:

Neither of these have large numbers of records locally.
