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.

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.

I don't want to say with absolute certainty, but I believe this to be a female Common Blue?

There were 2 and this was as close as I could get to them (not allowed on the Golf Course unless you pay!)

They've been hanging around a lot locally, seems they are moving in to the area, hopefully I'll manage to get better photos of them some other time!

Description

An invasive, non Native species to the UK, Japanese Knotweed, when growing on the banks of rivers can be very damaging, drowning out native species and causing erosion of the bank.
They have also been known to grow through poured concrete on building sites! Crazy stuff.
Being able to sprout & colonize from just a small part of the stem, they are also exceptionally hard to get rid of!

There's only a few of them on this corner and they appear to have been managed to an extent so don't pose too much of a problem.
