birds : A weekend of very little activity for me due to sickness - struggling with a heavy cold. So it was even more frustrating to watch Birdguides constantly updating with rarity upon rarity arriving in the UK - it must have been one of the best weekends ever for rarity arrivals. Nothing here though reported, quite surprisingly. The only thing of interest for me was a bunting-like bird which flew over the garden, which called and I didn't recognise at all - maybe that was the boy sneaking through!

.

moths : I did manage to scramble outside to check the moth trap on Saturday morning and I had 33 species which is pretty good for so late a date. No migrants at all though which was very surprising with the previous southerly winds.
