The Quakers...

Above, from the left - Powdered Quaker (Large), Common Quaker (Medium) and Small Quaker ( er, Small)...

Last night was hopeless for moth trapping, but, its no use just monitoring species in the best weather, so, the light was on. In a cold, blustery NW4 under a starry sky. I had to put a weight on the trap rain guard.

So I was pleased to get -

Small Quaker 1
Powdered Quaker 1
Common Quaker 2
Clouded Drab 1
Hebrew Character 7

12 moths of 5 species.

Tonight we had a cold, windy walk around the coast path. 2 Common Sandpipers fighting to perch on a single rock were the first this year, a few strings of Gannets flew N and 40+ Linnets were in the field.

OFFH List 117
