Well, a moth that looks like one...
After yesterdays blurred fridge shot of the Red Underwing, here's its passport photo. A camera can't do justice to these things. In flight this morning it was as near as I'm ever likely to get to a Wallcreeper in Northumberland!
I fancied it might be a VC68 North Northumberland first but I was wrong. Its not even the furthest north. That accolade goes to 2 stringy specimens from Lucker, near Bamburgh in 1886. Well its the first modern record and the first photographed!
Its one of my highlights of the year on this patch, even better than the Golden Oriole and thats saying something...
Also in the catch last night -
Spruce Carpet 1
Silver Y 1
Rosy Rustic 2
Frosted Orange 1
This morning 80 Pinkfeet flew south over the house...
