Decided to trawl the grandborough valley which turned out to be virtually devoid of birds with a few Stock Dove and one flock 200+ Fieldfare near Napton on the Hill till we approached Willoughby when a Red Kite was found hunting the old air strip field just outside the village before it drifted towards Sawbridge. Hopefully it was Fridays bird hanging around. Just as we approached the A45/Sawbridge junction 80 Golden Plover flew over.Yesterday’s warm weather meant a good arrival of moths with both Dave and I recording good numbers of Common Quaker and Clouded Drab. I had my first Early Grey and Hebrew Character of the year while Dave had Small & Twin-spot Quaker plus micro Epermenia chaerophyllella.
No butterflies seen today despite the cloud clearing late afternoon
