My only bird sighting today was as I was saying goodbye to a colleague after a rehearsal at the house: I heard, and then saw, a mistle thrush fly over. Ah well – one bird was better than none!
There were four moths in the moth trap today; a large wainscot, a beaded chestnut and the micro that’s been around a lot recently, eudonia angustea. The fourth had me confused because of its size but James confirmed that it was a very small white-point. Apparently successive generations get smaller!
