Quick post 25.05.12

Five days of warm settled weather and there has been very little improvement in moth catches for me. I didn't expect it to get back to normal that quickly but I didn't expect it to stay this bad either. Breeding birds are clearly suffering because of their absence especially at the caterpillar stage which goes to show their essential role in the food chain.
Green Carpet (Colostygia pectinataria)

Twenty-plume Moth (Alucita hexadactyla)
On the ringing front it has mainly been juvenile Starlings in the garden so far this week.
