Today whilst doing gardening It was very hot so I tried out the Emperor
Moth pheromone lure and sure enough one turned up after about 30
minutes-never stopped flapping but a first for the garden of course.Had a better day at
Dunge on Thursday where there was an arrival of Garganey I saw 7 of the 8 Garganey on the reserve. Also on the reserve were a
small flock Water Pipits. Finally from the ramp on the
reserve we saw a Bittern “booming” which was a first for me and meant
we had 5 species of heron in the day with Cattle, Little, and Great White
Egrets plus Grey Heron.
