Same as last year

I put the moth trap out last night but the temperature dropped to 4C as the cloud cover dispersed, so it was stopped it at 23:00. However there were a few moths caught, including single  Mottled Grey and Small Quaker which were duly added to this year's moth list at Waldridge. A few Common Quaker, Clouded Drab and Hebrew Character made up the rest. The list stands at 12 species, exactly the same as this time last year.

Otherwise its rather quiet, only a few calling Great-spotted Woodpecker and Tawny Owl.  The first singing Chiffchaffs have arrived in the county so I suspect I may get my first here at the weekend.
