We went on a night-time adventure to hunt for glowworms for #30DaysWild day 24.

A moth trap full of fabulous hawkmoths last night gave us our own night-flying aerobatics team, called the Pink Arrows. Then we investigated a (slightly less glamorous) dog vomit slime mould for #30DaysWild day 25.

The red kite chicks are growing up fast, losing their grey fluffy look. The parents seem quite relaxed and have been enjoying a bit of sunbathing.
We also caught an 'armful' of hawkmoths in the moth trap last night.

I fluttered my way around Grangelands this morning and saw chalkhill blues, silver washed fritillaries, marbled whites with mites and a lot of partying soldier beetles.

The first of the back garden red kite chicks is out of the nest on a nearby branch!
