November 1st 2010

Bob came round to photograph some moths in the morning.

Platyptilia gonodactyla



We popped down to Draycote Water in the afternoon where we could not make our minds up if the very distant aythya duck was a female Scaup or not but Bob persevered in getting a shot that might clinch the identification one way or the other. Not much else apart from 35 Stock Dove, adult and juvenile Yellow-legged Gull, 5 Goldeneye, 600 Starling near the sewage farm with a few more going west and a Feathered Thorn moth on the visitors centre wall.
Back out again in the evening with Dave for our moth course at Brandon where an unidentified owl flew over the entrance and on the way home a trawl of the lanes around Lawford Heath produced a Little Owl late evening. Three Large Wainscot in the trap at Brandon
