Beddington Farmlands

The manic and hectic pace at work continues and just about managed to get everything done before heading back to the Old Vicarage.

A few things in the moth trap including the year's first Dewick's Plusia and a few other firsts for year. The Beddington Farmlands moth year list is now on 202. 

Did a couple of window watching sessions too. On Thursday night did the parakeet count (1072) and there was also 250+ Swift and 3 juvenile Peregrines. On Friday morning I had a Curlew calling and soon after a Greenshank was calling- unfortunately couldn't see either. 

 Dewick's Plusia
 August Thorn (kinked outer cross line where it meets the leading edge of wing- compare to September Thorn in previous post where the line connects without a kink) 
 Crambus pascuella
 White-foot Bell 
 Still working on this one 
 The Beddington obs wildlife garden is doing well 
 Harvested our first asparagus from the wildlife garden 
Spent most of the last few days in this habitat- the gardens of the London suburbs. These gardens on the North Downs are some of the most wooded. Most of our work is in this environment.
