Despite being damp the warm air brought in over 160 moths of 26 species to my trap last night so once Bob had helped me clear down and take a few photos we went to Draycote Water for a walk to toft bay. A count of 85 immature Lesser Black-Backed Gulls loafing in fields off farborough bank with at least one adult Yellow-legged Gull present otherwise it was quiet. A male Pochard in toft bay was unusual and the Mute Swan flock was down from last weeks 44 to 36 but included one with davic ring number Y74. At least 5 Yellow Wagtail and 5 Buzzard noted along with 16 Common Spotted Orchid while the country park had 12 Meadow Brown and a Ringlet.
