I never did get to go over to Bolam for the singing Nightingale. An excellent county bird and it would have been a new one on that list for me, but I've seen loads in other places so what with one thing and another, the journey was too far out of my way. Now if it had been a Sprosser...




Instead last night, this Map winged Swift came to our window. A nice moth and good to compare with the Common Swift from the other night...

Tom Tams confirmed that my Mullein caterpillars were the first for Vice County 68 ( North Northumberland) and he has put them onto the national data base...

I used to have a couple of Nightingale breeding on my patch, over at the lake. The last time I recorded them was 2007, I wonder if they will ever come back. :-(
