Comma Butterfly doing the same
First time I've noticed this behaviour

 Cortinarius thought possibly C. flexipes by finder Steve beside Ogden Res.
Webcaps like this are poisonous. 

Rabbit at entrance to its burrow at Bradshaw

There was a steep south-facing bank near a cottage which had a tangle of wild plants, but with the soil showing through. It was alive with grasshoppers, said to be stridilating, but that's one natural sound I can no longer hear to my great regret. (Too many loud music gigs!)

With thanks to PeachySteve  for taking and forwarding the pictures.
