Went to visit my mother in Somerset this weekend. They may have stopped talking about it but there is still plenty of flood water!

Most of the ground-nesting birds will have lost their nests. Better news in the form of a new garden breeding record.

Also a couple of interesting things:

just a gingery pascuorum?

Back in Devon and there were 50+ Whimbrel at Wembury beach this morning (plus two over the house last night) although there was not much else. Apologies to the Plymouth Birder as I nicked the only good moth from the toilet block this morning - a new moth for me, Red Twin Spot Carpet. Evaded the camera though.

  1. As it was a new moth for you I will let you off!

    I have yet to see a red twin spot carpet this year but the dire weather is resulting in very few moth sightings anyway. Fingers crossed for some good weather!
