From the Clifftop

 At last !-a mild , cloudy night with no wind resulted in the first moths I've caught for over a week-13 species in the trap this morning, of which five were new for the year, and one , Acleris schalleriana,a tortrix,  new to me,. The others were Green-brindled Crescent [pictured], November Moth, Feathered Thorn and Spruce Carpet, taking the garden year list to 364 . But I'm writing this in the evening and there's a gale blowing, so no trapping tonight.

Not much to report on the bird front, some Siskins moving east, and 100 Goldfinches milling about the clifftop  but not really moving over the last two days; a pair of Peregrines yesterday and today seemed to be waiting for a Wood Pigeon movement, but none. This morning I walked through HCPNR to the Stade, very quiet indeed, just 8 Goldcrests.
