My New Neighbourhood: Part 1

I’ve had a rather an exciting summer, moving to a new home 65 miles across the country! I now live in the Market Bosworth area and it’s a lovely place to live.
I have hedgehogs visiting my front garden, at least 5 different individual hogs come to munch on the bowls of mealworms that I leave out for them. I’m guessing they come from the beautiful allotments just down the road from me.

In a hunt to find a top up bird seeds for those hungry birds, I found a lovely garden centre. In the warm sun, I balanced eating an ice cream with photographing these lovely butterflies!

The most random of moments happened a few weeks ago. When I opened the door to put out the hedgehog food, a large buzzing beastie flew over my head. Turned out to be a Large Elephant Hawk-moth. A most welcome and colourful house guest!
