I've Got My Beady Eyes On You.

Had a look down Chimney late afternoon today and the place was absolutely a-flutter with butterflys the most impressive being a gorgeous Peacock there were a few birds about but most of them were staying under cover in the humid heat of the day the ones I did get a gander at were Linnet, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Buzzard and Kestrel. Chimney is a super wildlife reserve that deserves all the public support it gets.

You Tell Me

You want to have a guess?

White-Lipped Banded Snail


  1. Hi Barry, I think that it's a Common Blue Damselfly.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to look - I bet you're right as well.
      Red Faced but not Blue Tailed camboy.

  2. Camboy,
    Why you continue to make so many identification errors beats me. I offer some more corrections and clarifications:-

    Peacock BUTTERFLY - the 4 (not 2) wings are a giveaway in separating this animal from a bird.
    10 spot Burnet - can't you count
    Gatekeeper ? - so where is the gate? or is that the rumoured St Peter Butterfly
    Incredibly ubiquitous blue and dark banded body with transparent wings Damselfy or Enallagma cyathigerum for short
    Roe or Sail.. often difficult to separate these dear - All Medal winners this GB Summer
    Monoculture of Trifids just completing a snack
    Holey plant or Holy as it is widely known
    High tension electricity transmission wires with attached, but incomplete, anti-collision deterrants
    Cepea nemoralis... the spirals (not bands) distinguishes it from the banded snail

    No wonder A-levels are getting easier if they are accepting your level of answers as correct.
    Must do better !

    1. I knew we should not have allowed you to attend the Bird Fair it was obvious you would come back with a knowledge that is bordering on the ethereal.
      Please Sir i've written these lines Sir so Sir please don't beat me Cur whoops sorry Sir I spelt it wrong Sir.
