The Pitsford moth team were busy again this morning and some spectacular moths were caught overnight. Please see a few of them below...
I had a quick scan for birds from the feeding station at Pitsford late morning. The best was the Goldeneye still, a successfully fledged juvenile Common Tern and the two adult Oystercatchers with just one well-grown youngster. I don't know what happened to the second youngster but it clearly isn't around any more unfortunately. A rare bird for Pitsford this year was a singing Sedge Warbler not far from the Maytrees Hide!
