Middleton ringing and moths

Heysham Obs
A reasonable catch in the hut trap, although no large numbers of any one species. Another, or the same(!), Dingy Footman, also V Pug, Lime speck Pug and Toadflax Pug.

Middleton IE
An early ringing session cut short by increasing wind. Only 14 birds, including one unringed Grasshopper Warbler and 3 young Willow Warblers, 2 Lesser Whitethroats, one Common Whitethroat and 2 Sedge Warblers.
