Best-Guess on ID.
I'm given to understand these guys are just 'Greater Pond Snails' - I can't really tell. Anyway, they live in an old, naturalized glass terrarium on my balcony which is filled with water, these, Ramshorn snails and water louse are the three species that have taken up permanent residence. We had a Pond Skater for a day but it left.
In summer you can see lots of tiny little invertebrates scooting around, I presume they are larvae of small flies amongst other things.
Powdered Sunshine Lichen, Vulpicida pinastri.
This little Lichen is a priority species and here at Langlands Moss has presented a few challenges for the team as they replace the wooden boardwalk with a recycled plastic alternative.
A pretty cool looking Broom Moth Caterpillar at Langlands Moss, L.N.R.
The ID for this was between Common & Herring Gull - my choice of Herring Gull is based mostly on the shape of the head and the size of the bird.
Wren at James Hamilton Heritage Park.
Female Common Darter at Coulter's Woods
Sphagnum Mosses at Shields Moss
Most probably ID is 'Large Black Slug' - despite how counter-intuitive that may seem.
ID from a friend as a 'Grey Chi'
Sundews at langlands Moss
Common False-Widow living on a wall.
Female ovipositing at Langlands Moss, L.N.R.
Cave Spider, either M. menardi or M. bourneti - Arachnologist took a specimen to I.D with a microscope but until then, can't be sure.
Dead Mole amongst the Sphagnum & Heather.
Masses of bracken.
I don't want to say with absolute certainty, but I believe this to be a female Common Blue?
To borrow a term from our birding friends, it's a 'Little Brown job'!
