I am loving the images folks! Don't worry about them being a bit non-professional; the sheer spontanuity of them can be effective too .

I love the long eared owl by the way... you were so lucky to get it perched for so long. I am a tiny bit jealous too !


Thank you one and all.

Some close-ups of our two native insect eating plants, the sundew and the butterwort I took yesterday up in the Wicklow Mountains. There seems to be a good number of them about this year compared to others for some reason .. maybe it's all the rain seeing as they grow in boggy conditions.

I also got literally within 10 feet of a young deer on a forest track that didn't seem at all worried by my presence, but didn't manage to get decent photo.

Grasshopper

Great variety of species on here so far!

Here is a Common Green Grasshopper in the back garden (I call it the garden but it's really an acre of untamed grass at the back of the site). It seems to attract a good variety of wildlife. This is where the owl pictures were taken as well.

Sorry, how do you mean a resident bird?
I first spotted it a month ago and to my knowledge this is the first time one has been spotted in my locality

Probably not resident. Most likely an immature bird. Particularly at this time of year there is a dispersal of the the Buzzard population resulting in birds turning up almost everywhere. last year I saw one at Heuston station. They are common along the east coast at the moment. Balbriggan and Blanchardstown area are good spots to see them. If they are resident in an area you will see them frequently through the breeding season.
