seanworrall_01 Today at the studio, the #elevenoclockpigeon looking very purple in the #sunshine. he or she has been hanging out here for a year now, didn't think the poor thing would survive when it first turned up as a freshly hatched thing with a badly injured leg. #pigeonsrule #todayatthestudio #pigeon #pigeonsoflondon #pigeonsofinstagram #hackneywildlife #purple

maggieking3 I have never seen a moth like this before. it is a box tree moth, cydalima perspectalis, native to eastern asia and probably introduced with imported box plants, spreading through europe to arrive in kent in about 2007. now relatively frequent in se of uk and even central london, like this one. out of its natural range it has few predators. it overwinters as a cocooned larva between two box leaves joined by silk #moths #hackneywildlife #londonwildlife

maggieking3 Common toad (bufo bufo) refreshing itself by absorbing water through its skin in my garden pond on a hot day. toads usually live for about 10 or 12 years, but have survived for 50 years in captivity. they emerge at dusk to hunt for woodlice, slugs, beetles, caterpillars, flies, earthworms and even small mice. food is swallowed whole as toads have no teeth. #toad #amphibia #pondlife #hackneywildlife

maggieking3 Yet another night visitor. i think this is a vine's rustic moth (hoplodrina ambigua), whose larvae feed on dandelions, amongst other plants #moths #hackneywildlife #vinesrustic #london #insects

maggieking3 Found this little bright green gem whilst pruning a mock orange bush. it is an oak bush-cricket, meconema thalassinum, which is arboreal, nocturnal and carnivorous. its antennae are twice as long as its body and i love its yellow beady eyes #insects #bushcricket #hackneywildlife

maggieking3 This strange insect is a common plume moth, or morning glory plume moth, emmelina monodactyla. at rest the wings are rolled up tightly, which explains why it is also called a t moth. the larvae mainly feed on bindweed #moths #insects #hackneywildlife #nightvisitors

maggieking3 This tiny moth is called a least carpet, idaea rusticata. it flies at night in july and august and is attracted to light. this one gets no prizes for camouflage! in the uk they are restricted to southeastern counties of england. larvae feed on ivy and traveller's joy (but not carpets). family geometridae #moths #insects #hackneywildlife #londonwildlife

maggieking3 Red admiral butterfly, prettily named vanessa atalanta, enjoying the warmth of a metal surface. some are resident in the uk, but most are migrants from central europe. the females lay a single egg on nettle tips, which the caterpillars eat. the adults feed on nectar from ivy flowers and buddleia, but also enjoy rotting fruit. they are unable to survive the british winter so must head south or they will die. the name is a corruption of the 18th century name red admirable #butterfly #redadmiralbutterfly #garden #hackneywildlife
