Here's my latest attempt at trying to identify moths. So far I reckon I've seen (or stringed) the following species over the last few weeks:
Buff Arches, Least Carpet, Small Scallop, Riband Wave, Yellow Shell, Common Pug, Brimstone Moth, Swallow-tailed Moth, Common Footman, Cinnabar, Garden Dart, Heart and Dart, Flame Shoulder, Clay, Smoky Wainscot, Common Wainscot, Knot Grass, Copper Underwing, Straw Underwing, Dun-bar, Common Rustic, Silver Y, Mother Shipton, Common Rustic and Dark Arches.
Birds today included 30 Green Sandpiper, 1 Greenshank and a juvenile Peregrine. The other guys had some more Blackwits too.
