The potato field has paid immediate dividens with a walk up the track this evening producing 40+ alba wagtails (all that I saw well enough were Pied), 6 Northern Wheatear and a single Yellow Wagtail (FoTS). This morning at around 0640 a friend living at the end of our road was visited briefly by a Waxwing in his garden before it flew off to the south, there was no sign of it twenty minutes later.
Ran the moth trap all last night and was very disappointed by just two individuals, one a Hebrew Character, and the other my first Red Chestnut. This is the third chestnut species of the year so far!
