Moth trap still not producing much even though the nights have warmed up a bit in the last couple of days. Last week at Dunge we struggled to find much but did get a good view of the Serin singing at nearby Littlestone.

Identified on a facebook site I have recorded another new species for the garden: Northern Drab. However, with not much else to report from home, here are another couple of pictures from my recent visit to Cape Verde.

I've not had a lot to report from the trap during the latter part of April. The Streamer and a couple of Muslin Moths were the only species new for the year. However, I recently had a week away in the Cape Verde Islands mainly to see seabirds. Some are pictured below. More will posted on my Flickr site in coming days.
