Grey Day............05/10

A dank, drizzly morning awaited me today and the Vismigging up on The Pinnacle was poor too! (The Lapland Bunting will just have to wait!) On the plus side, a few highlights from last night's trappings- a full count below-

Grey Shoulder-knot
1st of the Autumn, after one at The Lodge in February.

A 2nd Garden record of this immigrant moth.
Full Count-
  1. Willow Beauty- 3
  2. Blair's Shoulder-knot- 2
  3. Lesser Yellow Underwing- 2
  4. Large Yellow Underwing- 2
  5. Setaceous Hebrew Character- 2
  6. Shuttle-shaped Dart- 2
  7. Turnip Moth- 2

  1. Shame about the viz migging. Still you are getting moths that were finished here weeks ago...

  2. Stewart- I'd gladly swap a few Bedfordshire moth species for a Lap, Barred Warbler, Hawfinch etc. etc! Envious of your OFFH list!
