Draycote and Napton on the Hill

After another mild night meant that we were greet with 50 feet visibility which never cleared while we we present. Our walk to toft shallows produced 4 Grey Wagtails on farborough and toft bank and 7 Chiffchaff in willow scrub at the end of toft bank. Only other sightings were of adult Yellow-legged Gull, Ringed Plover, 2 House Martin and a single Wigeon.
Lunch at Brandon Marsh then a look at Napton on Hill which had 5 Raven, 2 Buzzard and a very large juvenile Sparrowhawk.
We have id this as 450 Scythropia crataegella but as its a July moth we will need the county recorder to confirm.

Angle Shades. I have trapped over 190 of these but this is the first that kept its wings open
