birds : I returned to the Fan-tailed Warbler nest-site to try and get a few photos. It was very frustrating as the female was showing very well but kept landing behind weeds slightly obscured. Also, I'd allowed myself a half-hour window to gets some snaps so I would not disturb the feeding of the young. It was trying to bring a Rosy Rustic to the nest and after a couple of attempts, it eventually did so - clearly I have a trusting face.

moths : A small selection of migrants in the trap this morning, including Bordered Straw and Tree-lichen Beauty. The best moth though was an abberantly-marked Brimstone, nothing like any I'd seen before.

nonsense : It would be fair to say that most things birding would not be classed as 'stylish'. However, this poster for Cape May Bird Observatory is pretty awesome.
