Day 2 of the #CityNatureChallenge: I finally made it to the Lainzer Tiergarten and made 73 observations, the highlights of which included:
Some enormous woodlice
Some sort of Polydesmus, curled up on a little wall it had built to protect its eggs
Plenty of Glomeris and pill woodlice
A red squirrel
A nuthatch — not a great photo, but they’re one of my favourite woodland birds
One of the furriest moths I’ve ever seen — I think it’s a chimney sweep moth? If so, it’s an appropriate name.
And finally, this enormous severed stag beetle head.
