It’s been slow in the moth trap of late, but yesterday gave us a wonderful Clifden Nonpareil, rather smaller than last year’s monster, but a stunner nonetheless. Here’s a few more mothy highlights from recent weeks.
It’s autumn already. We seem to have been the only place in Sussex this weekend without a Pied Flycatcher, but a look in the garden this morning gave us something nearly as good, in the form of a migrating Reed Warbler visiting the pond. We have heard them singing before on spring passage, but this is the first we have seen in the garden.
