Birds today

Blackwits leaving to the east

So far Greenshank, Spotted Redshank and 5 Blackwits on the Shunan with a new max of 24 Redshank.

By afternoon everything had left bar one Blackwit and a couple of Dunlin.

Rosy Rustic - autumn's here

I'm pretty sure this is Setaceous Hebrew Character but it looks not a lot like the pix in the book; that's because it's Autumnal Rustic, oops

Moth numbers were not especially high today with just 149 Large Yellow Underwings and 85 Common Rustics. A perfect evening tonight so the trap's out again.

The Rooks and Jackdaws have just come in to roost, something like 2,000 birds in the roost of which a significant proportion are Jackdaws, unfortunately they all came in together so uncountable.
