 Since my last post another 6 species of moth have been recorded in the garden: Early grey, Small Quaker, March Moth, Brindled Beauty, A. alstromeriana and Common Plume. The Barn Owls have shown well on occasion at Seasalter and a Buzzard flew low over North Bishopden Wood, where 2 Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers have been seen recently.
