The Cinnabar Moth,An Flanndearg,Callimorpha Jacobaeae heads up this post, a moth which I have seen many times over the past three weeks,in grass verges,along the river bank and at the Rock near the boundary wall by the roadside.Sometimes identified by the number of spots it displays.
Can be skittish but this one was settled for periods to allow me to shoot her with my Sony Compact.
The rebuild of the wall continues with both Coillte and the Council working seamlessly!
However the water cube,cement bags and numerous blocks were stolen early in the week by someone pulling a horse box.The Garda are looking for a Horse!Maybe fancies a stable for the winter.
The concrete base and support wall will,I understand be faced with the stones that were in the old wall so from the roadside all will appear as before....
Additional draining holes are included on the roadside....Work could well be completed by next week.
