Having been afflicted by the dreaded 'Man Flu' over the past couple of days I have neither had the energy, or the inclination, to do a great deal this bank holiday weekend. A bout of flem- induced insomnia saturday morning saw me walking a very cold West Runton clifftop at five o'clock hoping to jam a Red-throated Pipit or the like but a Yellow Wag (not a footballers wife!) going west was very little recompence.
A couple of brief moth trapping sessions during the week brought several year ticks and a 'lifer'.
MYL 48 Brimestone Moth
MYL 49 MAY HIGHFLYER
MYL 50 Middle-barred Minor
MYL 51 Marbled Minor
MYL 52 Scalloped Hazel
MYL 53 Muslin Moth
Marbled Minor (apparently these two moths, plus another, can only be properly identified by killing them and cutting them up to check out their'rude' bits! I gave these two the benefit of the doubt, and any future ones to be honest, cause even if they are not what I think they are I can honestly say 'well no one died!'
