A few nature sightings from the North East. At Shibdon Pond, Blaydon this bracket fungi growing on a deciduous trunk had a definite frog like appearance.
Southern Marsh Orchid, Dactylorhiza praetermissa
Woody Nightshade, Solanum dulcamara
Back in Gosforth my first successful moth sighting. As a moth newbie I wasn't too sure what it was, but with Pam's help we think it's a Silver Ground Carpet Moth. According to UK Moths its a common UK species, displaying varying depths of colour, although all have the distinctive whitish ground colour. Adults fly May to July, it mainly flies at night although it can often be disturbed during the day from low vegetation in woodlands & clearings. This one rested on the shed door for hours.
And I couldn't resist, a beautiful Foxglove, Digitalis pupurea
