New moth for the farmlands

 L-album Wainscot- a first for the farmlands. An immigrant which has increased greatly across the south of UK in last 15 years. 
 Another Dewick's Plusia
 Angle Shades- always great to see. The odd Silver-Y and Rush Veneer most evenings recently, both migrant species. 
 Male Stonechat- the first of the autumn today. Also the first Siskin. The Wigeon influx continues- Marcus counted 34 yesterday.
Lapwings and Teal on Ed's Pool (the small area of wetland on the southern lake) where water levels are being controlled more carefully to create areas for waders. 12 Snipe, 1 Green Sandpiper and 22 Lapwing in there today.
