From the Clifftop

Autumn is upon as and my morning routine is now moth trap, followed by a walk along the Firehills or further in search of migrants.

The best moth over the last few days has been The Annulet, a cliff species thought lost from the Hastings area until I caught a couple this time last year. It's not a showy species, especially as all have been worn, a Jersey Tiger again this morning was more attractive. Also today were two Flame Carpets, taking my 2017 garden moth list to 318-one more than I caught in all the first year of living here.

Migrant birds have been pretty thin-8 Willow Warblers on a walk to Hastings yesterday, a nice Redstart at the top of Warren Glen then, and odd Tree Pipits buzzing overhead. Yellow Wagtails have been strangely absent, so good to get a couple this morning.

At Rock-aNore, 100 GBB Gulls yesterday included what were doubtless the two juveniles that fledged earlier on in the Old Town.
