Spuggies on the up again

The moth trap overnight produced 65 moths of 25 species. Most were the same species as the other night, but 7 additional ones were trapped -

Poplar Hawk-moth
Scalloped Oak
Peppered Moth
Single-dotted Wave
Common White Wave
Cabbage Moth
Burnished Brass

House Sparrows are gradually increasing in the Waldridge area after their numbers had declined dramatically over recent overs. There  was very good to count 52 at lunchtime in one of the hedges at Chester Moor.
