2 new moths in the trap

61 moths in trap last night and I rarely get new ones for garden these days but 2 - Grey Mountain moth and the micro-moth  Epermenia chaerophyllella. Also present was another Beautiful Carpet and 6 Small Elephant Hawkmoth.

Birds   75
Vascular Plants   279
Mosses & Liverworts  41
Lichens   12
Fungi & Slime Moulds   13
Terrestrial Mammals   6
Butterflies   18
Moths   152
Dragonflies   3
Hoverflies   22
Other inverts   89
Amphibians & Reptiles   1
Aggregates & hybrids (not included) 17

so that puts me on 711 for #1000for1ksq.

6 Oystercatcher flew over the house in one group, calling noisily followed by a single bird (I had one over earlier in the week too). Not sure where they are coming from as I don't think they breed on the patch though a couple of pair do breed on factory roofs in Birtley these days.
