Just a few moths.

The relatively mild conditions have brought a few moths out over the last week with 4 species caught in the garden moth trap. Three of the species recorded, Clouded Drab, Hebrew Character, Common Quaker, are a bit earlier than normal as their flight periods usually start in March while Pale Brindled Beauty is a winter flying moth and males can be found on the wing from January to March.

There has not been a great deal of change on the bird front but it wont be long before Spring shifts up a gear and there is more to blog about.
