June 22nd 2011

A dull overcast morning slowly brightening with rain threatening so spent it clearing down our traps with Bob after another good night with more variety than the previous evening with Scalloped Oak new for the year for me while Dave had 38 species.
Raven went over Dave’s garden otherwise rest of morning spent going over next months French trip, catching up with my blog and sorting out photos after Bob had finally got back on line.

Common Emerald

Clouded Brindle

Broad-barred White

Beautiful Golden Y

I have done well with Peppered Moths this year catching all 3 variations for the first time in the same year.

Finally went out late afternoon with a ride around the valley finding Little Owl at Sawbridge and Grey Partridge at Grandborough before a look at the pond produced 2 Common Tern, Common Sandpiper, Little Ringed Plover and Yellow Wagtail.
