Wednesday 30th November 2016

Having packed up the moth traps until the new year, this little beauty then appeared when the sun came out. It's name is Phyllonorycter messaniella and it continuously mines the leaves of our Holm Oaks.

Another cold and frosty night, that turned into a bright, sunny morning. However, with autumn over and winter fast approaching there is little on site to set the pulses racing. The only birds worth a mention were 1 Fieldfare, 1 Lapwing, one of the Peregrines over the docks and 1 Skylark that went south. 

1 bird ringed: a Song Thrush.
