Moth list goes past the 200.

Put the moth trap out overnight for the first time since before my holidays.

Total of 59 moths of 24 species was ok but there were a few new ones for the year

Agriphila tristella   
Scalloped Oak
Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing

Dotted Clay
and Cloaked Minor.

Poplar Hawkmoth - 2 caught, common but still impressive

Also the Red & Black Carrion Beetle - Nicrophorus investigator 

The moth list for the year goes over the 200 mark.

I added a few more bird sightings from my hols on the blog A Waldridge Naturalist in Switzerland.
