The mini wader passage continues

The mini wader passage over the fell continued with a small group of 7 Golden Plover heading north-east. The usual early autumn finch flock has started to assemble with about 50 Greenfinch, Linnet and Goldfinch present this morning. A Speckled Wood was feeding on the Buddleja forrestii in the front garden when I got back from work together with a Large White and a Green-veined White yesterday was roosting in the Greenhouse when I last looked.

The moth trap was out overnight and I checked it this morning in quite a bit of mist first thing. 124 moths of 59 species were present including Early Thorn, The Phoenix and the large-ish micro, Udea lutealis.
