Not much doing here at the minute. Even the common local birds seem to have become elusive. Apart from the juv Great spotted Woodpecker still at the feeders, 2 Grey Wagtails in the village and a flock of about a hundred Swallows near the farm a single Yellow Wagtail in with the cows was the only thing of note.

The past couple of nights I have been out with the torch checking our buddleias for moths. There has been a few, including good numbers of Mother of Pearl, several Smoky Wainscot, Snout, Large Yellow Underwing, a single Common Footman and Marbled Beauty. Give it a try in your garden but be sparing with the torch light because the moths move off after few minutes of their flowers being illuminated...
