Not many moths to report since my last post, but I did trap a Pale Mottled Willow on the 26th-my first November record of this common species. Today I spent a windy day at Dungeness where the Long-eared Owl (a Dunge tick for me) was still roosting behind the dipping pond near the RSPB visitor centre . Other birds on the reserve were 2 Great White Egrets, Litte Egret, 5 Smew and a Goosander. Near the fishing boats we saw a Yellow-legged Gull and Scandinavian Herring Gull. When I left a gale was blowing.
