Birds, Moths, Natural History in and around Hailsham and the Pevensey Levels
Wednesday, 28 June 2017
This moderately attractive micro was trapped overnight on the 18th June. It is very rare that I am entirely comfortable with micro ids', especially when the status says anything other than common, so it was kind of Colin Pratt to confirm my suspicions.
The same night produced another 2 new micros' for the garden, Gypsonoma dealbana and Agapeta hamana, along with a new macro in the shape of the female Ghost moth pictured below. A real red letter night!
Birding has, as is typical at this time of year, dropped off a bit. The best of a motley assortment being an adult Med gull in Normans bay on the evening of the 18th and a Red Kite drifting over the garden on the afternoon of the 22nd.
