The Red Valarian is starting to come out, and this is normally a major draw for butterflies and moths.
The heavily scented Honeysuckle is another great attraction, but what do I get.
Setaceous Hebrew Character, a common moth, but the second earliest I've recorded, but not a migrant from across the sea.
Heart and Dart, another common moth, distinguished by the black across the head. With the weather forecast for NE winds for the nest few day I expect that my mothing will remain unexciting.
Birds Two Siskins are still coming to the garden feeders and the noise of the young Great Tits must mean that they are not long for fledging. Pam took me out for a pint at the Coastguards this evening and I picked up my binoculars to watch a group of passing Cormorants, and was surprised to see three Cormorants with a single Brent Goose, that was behaving as if it thought it was one of them.
