Scoters and Vapourers

Plenty of activity today at the pond with 3 male Common Scoter and 3 immature Shelduck on our morning walk to toft bay though we missed Sanderling, Whimbrel and Ruff. Also seen were 19 Teal, 2 Shoveler, 15 Common Tern, 5 Little Egret, 15 Yellow Wagtail, 10 Linnet, 20 Greenfinch, 3 Yellowhammer, 3 Whitethroat, 3 Meadow Pipit, Peregrine, 2 Buzzard, Chiffchaff, 2 Green Woodpecker and 10 Swift. Napton on the Hill had 3 Buzzard, 3 Raven, Peregrine and Hobby while the reservoir had 3 Common Tern.
The moth trap has been pretty poor this month so 88 Large Yellow Underwing, 32 Flounced Rustic, 4 Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing’s and a Vapourer Moth among 16 species from 154 moth’s was welcome.
