My computer is slowly dying and does not always listening to my pleas to work so may be off-line soon for a while I make me mind up what to replace it with.
Birding locally has picked up in recent days with Turnstone, Dunlin, 5 adult and 2 second year Yellow-legged Gulls at the pond on Sunday morning, Osprey and Black Tern yesterday afternoon while today there were 5 Ringed Plover, Dunlin, 4 Common Tern, 50+ Swift and adult Yellow-legged Gull.
Still hundreds of Large White butterflies in the Cathiron area along with good numbers of Peacock and 20+ Silver Y’s when we looked at Oliver Cromwell going north again. Dave had 6 Comma butterflies in his garden this morning while we were clearing down his trap and I am getting a few Vapourer moths visiting mine.
Dave ended July with over 220 moth species trapped from over 5000 moths and his garden list just keeps growing with it now on 322 Macros and 321 micro species from 108,000 moths trapped since August 2005. I had just completed his records when he caught number 644.
