More Pitsford moths!


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!

Happy Birding!
