From the Clifftop

I've currently given up running the moth trap during this lengthy run of cold nights-a waste of elecricity just to catch two common moths !  Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible...

Birding has been hard work too [it seems to get harder every year], forays in search of Turtle Doves and Nightingales have been unsuccesful so far. Yesterday was notable for a passage of well-tracked Pomarine Skuas along the coast in the afternoon. As it happened, I was ready for these, espcially the flock of 11 heading my way past Bexhill. But despite the best that Swarovski can offer, I was unable to pick these out from the clifftop, as in previous years I suspect they cut across to Dungeness too distanly for me to see. I did see one distant Skua that looked like an Arctic Skua, and a party of 6 Knots-an addition to the house list. Closer to home , we were invaded by noisy groups of young Starlings.
