Back to Saturday

Saw the first Common buzzard since the spring Saturday morning, it was briefly soaring over Rounce's Covert (a small wood on the south west edge of the parish) before moving off west. Saturday evening had a fine mothing session at my local coastal patch near Sheringham with three other keen cohorts where we potted nearly anything that moved! The list was impressive and included plenty of new species for all concerned :
Silver ground Carpet, Common Emerald, Dingy Footman, Ghost Moth, Scalloped Shell, Buff Arches, Riband Wave, Yellow Shell, Rosy Footman, Small Fan-footed Wave, Common Footman, Double Squarespot, Green Pug, Small Angle Shades, Dark Arches, Small Rivulet, Poplar Grey, Poplar hawkmoth, Scarce Silver Lines, Drinker, Rufous Minor, Silver Y, Large yellow Underwing, Peach Blossom, Elephant Hawkmoth, Peppered Moth, Pine Hawkmoth, Snout, Single dotted Wave, Smoky Wainscote, Common Wainscote, Common Carpet, Mottled Beauty, Broad bordered Yellow Underwing, Sandy Carpet, Swallow Prominent, Brimstone Moth, Light Emerald, Bordered Sallow, Brown-line Bright-eye, Barred Yellow, Brown Silverline, Yellowtail, Bordered Pug, Light Arches, Figure of Eighty and Lesser Broad bordered Yellow Underwing phew! I 'm sure I've missed a couple on top of that lot as well!
