From the Clifftop

The last two days have been a lot warmer, and the nights a lot less chilly and overcast; moth catches improved accordingly. The only new moth for the trap was a Rustic Shoulder-knot yesterday, today there were 13 species including four migrant moths: 2 Silver Y's, a Dark Sword-grass and a Diamond Back. Also a smart, tiny, Least Black Arches and a couple of Red Twin-spot Carpets [identified using the underwing pattern as illustrated in the new edition of the macr0-moth guide]

While I was checking the trap a Yellow Wagtail flew over so I took a rather cool walk along the Firehills to check for migrants-just one more Wagtail, but the male Stonechat was still present at the east end .
