August 11th 2011

Another blustery day with Whitethroat and Garden Warbler in the country park, 400 Swift, 200 House Martin, 100 Swallow and 80 Sand Martin overhead before the rain arrived.
A Greenshank was in toft bay despite the disturbance from the grass cutters with another 2 Bob had in biggen bay landing on toft north shore. Luckily the rain did not last long but apart from a Common Tern, first summer Yellow-legged Gull, Hobby, 5 Buzzard and the usual Yellow Wagtail, Little Ringed Plover, Ringed Plover and Dunlin it was a quiet visit.
Bob and I are slowly going through the hundred of moths photos taken over the last few weeks which has resulted in another 31 micros to add to Dave's list and proberbly another 12 by the time we finish with the identification.

This one has us foxed and remains unidentified

Ancylis badiana

Coxcombe Prominent

Platyptilia gonodactyla

Meanwhile the Bumbling Bears have done me proud with this image of "T" passing the end of their garden on its way south last Saturday evening.
