Since my last post I've added two more moth species to those I've recorded in December: Angle Shades and B. lacticolella. I was surprised to find that the Angle Shades was also the first I've recorded this year. However, despite the mild conditions, I've yet to see a Winter Moth this autumn. Went over to Grove Ferry in gloomy conditions this afternoon-the male Hen Harrier flew past the Marsh Hide just as I left it! Two Barn Owls showed well on the walk back to the car but no Short-eared this time. The latest addition to my garden bird list is pictured below.
