I wonder if anyone can help me identify these insects? And possibly the flowers too!

This was by my side gate last night (April 13th). It's about the diameter of a teacup.

British bats in flight

Hello everyone, this is my first post on here. I have been observing bats from my garden. And now have a new found appreciation of them. They truly are fascinating animals. I managed to get some footage of them and uploaded it onto my YouTube channel if anyone's interested. Enjoy.... :)

Blue Billed Mallard

I spotted this unusual looking Mallard here in Aberystwyth yesterday. It appears to have all the feathers and colouration of a mallard drake but with a very distinct, pale blue beak. (it is much bluer than it appears in the photo)

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Newts vs Fish

Hi everyone. :wave:
I am currently trying to complete my dissertation on the impact that introduced fish species have on Newt populations.
I am finding it very difficult to find a adequate number of sites to survey, so I was wondering If I could impose on you all. If you have previously given me data less than 2 mouths ago please don't again.
If I could trouble you to maybe give me some data ...

Yellow Billed Magpie?

Evening all,

I was driving to work this morning and whilst sat at a set of traffic lights I glanced right at the Magpies sitting in a tree, they were about 15ft - 20ft away one of them had a distinctive white/cream bill.

So now that I'm home I thought that I would have a google and the closest I can find is the Yellow Billed Magpie from the USA.

I am going back tomorrow ...

Wildlife on allotments

I've got an allotment where veg grows most of the year round. I've included fruit trees and companion planting. I am interested to know what sort of wildlife people find on their allotments.
At the moment there are a range of birds, insects and mammals.

I'm interested to know what visits other people's allotments.
I'll add my own comments about different types of animals visiting as well.

Can anyone identify these animal droppings?

During the last few weeks I have seen numerous examples of animal droppings, black and shiny sausages 2-3 inches long, about ¾ inches in diameter, in a pile. On a few occasions they have been packed with what look like cherry stones. They have appeared overnight in my suburban garden in Gloucestershire and in the cul-de-sac outside. Foxes, badgers and deer are known to rove over the area. (I would have included a photo but ...

What's this weird wormlike creature

Hi folks! I'm sure everyone here will know what this is straight away, but we're all a bit baffled. It seems to be a hair-thin worm, apparently strong enough to break the surface tension of the water it's in while searching the air for something. I found it a couple of weeks back on my nan's plastic fence in her back garden in Cambridgeshire on a wet morning. It's right near some bird feeders, and ...
