Yesterday began with a pile of moths and a dark phase Arctic Skua low through the garden. The previous evening whilst fetling the moth trap a Grey Heron was found in the corvid roost and it conveniently swung into airspace before heading off.

Moths included Barred Yellow amongst 352 Large Yellow Underwing and 142 Lesser/Common Rustic.

Barred Yellow

The trip to Queenamidda produced an intermittently calling Greenish Warbler, frustratingly it remained hidden and persistence was discouraged by some serious midge action.
