A short sea watch tonight didnt yield any of the large shearwaters that have been around lately but it was ok with the following noted -
Craster 17.30pm - 18.40pm
Manx Shearwater 76
Arctic Skua 11
Red throated Diver 1
Little Gull 1
Arctic Tern 40+
Plus loads of Kitties, Gannets and Fulmars etc.
The weekend highlight though came overnight in the moth trap.
1157 Crocidosema plebejana is a canny gob ful, but this little speck is a first for Northumberland and might even be the first for the north of England? Its usual range is along the south coast from Scillies to Suffolk, so one 400 miles north is a bit bizarre...
Anyway here it is, be dazzled by its beauty!
Thanks to the twitterarti for pointing me in the right direction....
