I've been away in Canada for the last 2 weeks and missed the best weather of the summer so far. Put the trap out last night expecting bumper numbers but got only 17 moths of 12 species. Four of these were new for the year but there was nothing exciting. So here a couple of bird pictures from Canada, both species were new ones for me. The Lewis's Woodpecker is interesting in that it hawks for insects rather like a large Swallow.
