    I think they're together. I think they're under ones of the sheds - at least they seem to come from that direction when we see them out and about. They're keeping us interested.

    And one here today. Flitting round the buddleia with impressive accuracy and speed.

    Excellent! I didn't know these moths even existed until a couple of weeks ago. As you say their speed and accuracy is remarkable.

    A Linnet which I thought was a Redpoll of some discription until I looked it up. Didn't realise Linnets had the red on the forehead! Nice wee thing!

    We were in Mid Wales last week and was surprised to see a large flock of Fieldfares below Cadair in between Cregennan lakes and Kings Youth Hostel. Seemed very early to me, but they were enjoying the Rowan berries. Not seen any at home in Yorkshire yet. Someone said to me that there are resident British Fieldfares, I thought they all migrated here for winter. Anyone know about this?

    Saw Herons aplenty in the Betwys-Y-Coed/Llanberis area over the past weekend.

    Not being a nature expert, I'm not sure whether this is especially common or not... I suspect it is not a special occurrence...!

    Water levels really high in the rivers and streams. The river in Betws was particularly spectacular on Friday, and seeing all the white water plunging off the cliffs of Lliwedd and surrounding areas, down towards the lakes at the bottom, was an awesome sight...

    Even while cycling through the lowlands between Bangor and Llanberis on Friday, I concluded that the distinctive sound of Gwynedd was rushing water. And some of the little lanes just outside Bangor had standing water.

    Quiet time of year. Most of our our summer visitors have gone, or are preparing to go. Today's sighting: jay, off to stash his nuts no doubt
