The weather was mild 8 degrees, overcast, looking like rain with a light SW3.
The haul was -
672 Parsnip Moth 1 new for the garden but believe me, not worth a photo!
688 Agonopterix heracliana 2
1663 March Moth 2
1926 Pale brindled Beauty 1
2139 Red Chestnut 1
2182 Small Quaker 3
2187 Common Quaker 18
2188 Clouded Drab 13
Above - Twin spotted Quaker.
2189 Twin spotted Quaker 1 new for me and the garden. I thought I was too far north for these so its a
very welcome addition. PS I have just heard that this is a first for VC68, North Northumberland!
2190 Hebrew Character 13
2256 Satellite 1 (white spotted)
This morning was bright and clear but much cooler with a blustery NW wind.
At 9am I was going out with Bunts and noticed a 2nd summer Mediterranean Gull flying around the back field with a couple of Black headeds. It was in full summer plumage but with black in the wing tips. After only a few minutes it flew off SE over the village and wasnt seen again. A nice one ofr the garden list!
