birds : Wednesday morning looked excellent for migrants with low cloud and drizzle, and indeed it was with about 1000 Fieldfares grounded at Pleinmont according to Tony. Of course, I was at home looking after the kids but did see 3 or 4 small flocks of Fieldfare passing over. I have a mornings birding at Pleinmont tomorrow and I don't expect anything less than a Parula thank you very much.

.

moths : Even though it is getting very late in the season, I did put the trap out last night. An exceptionally late Swallow-tail Moth was the most unusual record amongst the c.30 species.
