Very few moths in the trap Saturday morning, my target of 200 in the garden is unattainable I think, with only a handfull of new species left to take to the wing til the years end. Faired a little better on the bird front with upto 4 Common Buzzard, a Marsh Harrier east and a Hobby still present. Additionally Siskin (2) and a Grey Wagtail were the first of the autumn.

This morning the trap was a little bit more interesting, full catch: Large Yellow Underwing 3, Common Wainscot 2, Merville du Jour 2, SHC 1, Green-brindled Crescent 3, Shuttle-shaped Dart 1, Blair's Shoulder-knot 1, Lunar Underwing 3, Beaded Chestnut 2 and, best of all, another immigrant in the shape of a Vestal* GYL 179
