Balcony moths and a garden event

Brimstone Moth, Opisthograptis luteolata
Moths are starting to appear on our balcony now that warm weather has returned. I had a Brimstone Moth (above), Yellow-backed Clothes Moth and a Narrow-winged Grey during the past few days.
 On Saturday morning Aunt Bea and Jackie joined me at the Murray Downland Trust annual garden event. This is held in the renowned sculptor Philip Jackson's garden at Cocking. It was very enjoyable, many new sculptures were in the garden and delicious cakes were consumed and bought for later. I purchased some thrift plants for the balcony as they should survive the salty south westerlies, we'll see.
 On Saturday afternoon I had a SusSAR call-out and headed to Haywards Heath to join the search for a vulnerable missing person.
 Sunday was a club detecting day, nothing exciting found by anyone, my best finds were a George V 1920 shilling and a Tudor buckle.
