The first Fieldfare of autumn was around the village this morning. Other than that, interest was hard to come by due to the stormy weather. A gusty northerly with some heavy rain squalls made thinsg a tad uncomfortable. The only other birds seen were 25 Curlew in the top field and a Great spotted Woodpecker in the garden.
A Stoat ran over the road and across the coast cow field, stopping briefly to look back before vanishing onto the coast path.
Yesterday before work, 4 Bramblings dropped into the village and a female Merlin dashed across in front of the car at Longhoughton.
Moth trapping has been ok the past two nights but no new species for the year. It wont belong before its time to wash the trap out and put it away...See the moth blog for details....
