Another Hummer

Heysham Obs
What a good year it is for Humming-bird Hawk moth.  They have been all over the place recently and its been a case of checking buddleias etc to see if you can find one, not just the 'once a year at best jam-in'

Middleton NR
Decent ringing session by this year's standards with double-figures totals of Willow Warbler and Whitethroat and a trickle of other things, notably a single Grasshopper Warbler
Common Buzzard - two circling overhead in mid-afternoon (no vis mig in the morning)

Heysham NR and area
Humming-bird Hawk-moth - one on buddleia near Ocean Edge in the Nature park
Comma - at least four with the above - a good total for here
Red Admiral - one nature park, one NR on transect

Another decent catch including 3 x Bordered Beauty, a very late Dingy Shears, Barred Rivulet, Campion (rare here) and a less welcome first Square spot Rustic of the year
