From the Clifftop

We have been away in Brittany for a couple of weeks, as last year some entertaining moth trapping, more species and individuals than here. I managed to put the moth trap out at home  last night, [too wet the night before], catching up on the autumn species. In the picture are three species of Sallows, showing their autumn leaf camouflage; from left to right : Pink-barred Sallow, Barred Sallow and The Sallow.  also typical of autumn were Red-line and Yellow-line Quaker, Red-green Carpet, and  Black Rustic .

Rain set in after I sorted the trap, but passed and I spent nearly 3 hours wandering around HCPNR- there will be a Friends of HCPNR walk on Saturday [0800 at the VC], and the RX Birdrace has come round again. I just missed 11 Ring Ouzels which seemed to leave when the rain cleared, but got a late Hobby and my first Dartford Warbler of the autumn.
