From the Clifftop

Another very cold morning today, but despite this a more varied selection of moths is coming to my Fairlight garden trap. This morning's list included this handsome Pebble Prominent, easily overlooked on the brick wall next to the trap, and a Purple Thorn. These are both species emerging earlier in Sussex  in recent  years, similarly   the Scalloped Hook-tip and Muslin Moth I've caught recently.

Birding remains dire, with very little moving at sea, and three walks through the Country Park over the Easter break revealing virtually no migrants, just single Wheatears, a couple of Whitethroats and the odd Swallow in. A singing male Stonechat was interesting though.
