More dodgy forecasts

Heysham Obs
Just about got away with the HNR CES weather-wise this morning and it produced a Blackcap ringed elsewhere

Yesterdays Long-tailed Tit flock at Middleton contained a bird ringed at a Knott End seafront garden (a major Long-tailed Tit flightline!) on 12/11/09

Todays moths included both Buff (rare here) and Dingy Footman and Acleris emargana.

This provides an infrequent chance to compare two of the scarce Footman species here Dingy (left) & Buff (right). ajd.
