|Acleris Emargana, I think.|
On the bird front, I was expecting a few migrants this morning but by the time I had finished with the moths it was all a bit of a rush again. A WILLOW WARBLER was in the car park with the usual SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS at the moment there were 4 this morning, there was no sign of the 'chats' out in the fields unfortunately, especially as a friend of mine, Pete, had come to have a quick look for them for a second time when they decided not be around. We did hear a YELLOW WAGTAIL go over, no doubt an escapee from the Pittswood area :-). The short bit of hedge I did manage to get a look at held 2 SEDGE WARBLERS, 4 WHITETHROATS, YELLOWHAMMER and a WREN, so there certainly were a few bits around, I just didn't have long enough to find them all! Also this morning there were at least 60 SWALLOWS hanging around over the veg garden, a sign of things to come, they were later joined by a good number of HOUSE MARTINS making the total around of around 100 birds in all.
