A heavy frost overnight still lingering this morning. There was no point putting the trap out last night, though I did a few nights ago. However, even though the minimum temperature was a sweltery 8.9C, there was virtually no cloud early on and a near full moon. The result was not surprising, zero.
A few flowers and birds added but not much in the way of quality - Early Crocus and Snowdrop, two garden escapes but quite well established were in flower on the fell. Also added were a few more 'weedy plants', Hairy Bittercress, Nipplewort and Autumnal Hawkbit. Three more birds were also noted, Song Thrush, Nuthatch and Coal Tit.
Hopefully, a bit more time in the field tomorrow will reap better rewards
