Yet another 'under fiver'

Heysham Obs
Doing well with 'under ten' or 'under five' previous records species so far this year, with the moth scenario amazingly already producing a new species (also new for the 10k square) in the form of Grey Shoulder-knot and an 'under five records, possibly only the second or third' (Oak Beauty).  This morning, another 'under five records' appeared in the form of the rather unobtrusive Mottled Grey.  I've found this species to be most common on the moorland edge and inland deciduous wooded areas.

A Siskin was heard around the office, but no coastal coverage today
