Beddington Farmlands, Vestal and House Martins

Fresh south west winds and heavy rain showers has made it pretty tough going for migration this weekend. However some birds are still pushing through with over 700 House Martins moving through the farmlands yesterday and another migrant ball of 150 moving high over this morning. There's a Wheatear today too and a few Meadow Pipits are bouncing agaisnt the flow. The 2 Pintail and Wigeon are still around and duck numbers are building up well. 

Moth numbers have dropped off considerably but there's been a couple of migrants including a Vestal and the odd Diamond-back Moth. L-album Wainscot may also have been a migrant. Lunar Underwings, Large Yellow Underwings and Box-tree Moths are dominating the scene at the moment.
