Gold swift lek ...it's started.
I suppose it marks time - the first appearance in the hedgerow up the road of the gold swift lek. Tonight there were 13 of these beautiful little moths - twisting and spiralling up in their lek. The female produces a pineapple like smell to attract the males....hopefully we'll get some sunny evenings for better photos, but lovely to see that the population has survived the winter.
