Tuesday February 21st 2017

Mild start to the day with the breeze cessating throughout the morning resulting in the first Porpoise of the year being picked up as it steamed north. Bird wise no migrants noted with offshore movements on the very low side so barely worth a mention apart from a Fulmar feeding in the wake behind a ship.

In the moth traps single Common Plume & Dark Chestnut with several examples of this critter siting on the outside of the actinic trap. As our knowledge of Diptera is very poor if anyone knows its scientific name please drop us an e.mail to (it is obviously a common enough species).
