Twenty one Meds and an obscure moth

Heysham Obs
Ocean Edge/Red Nab area
Med Gull - 10 juv, 7 adult/3CY, 4 2CY
Little Gull - adult

Middleton swallow roost
A cautious session this evening as befitted the possible threat of sudden rain out of a pretty uniform grey sky.  A single net visited regularly and taken down before dusk produced 44 Swallows (one adult) and a Sedge Warbler


Thanks Janet

Moth trap
An obscure thing I've forgotten the name of like a Coleophora with a tapering body - managed to locate it = Batrachedra praeangusta. Also three Agriphila latistria
