A hobby was spotted locally on Saturday whilst a surprise turtle dove was seen as I was driving back from a local village. The turtle dove was flying parallel to the car for a few hundred yards. Very obvious flight pattern gave it away before plumage was noted.
As for moths, it isn't really getting any better. The drop in night time temperatures means very little on the wing. However, a cabbage moth, heart and dart and flame shoulder were all new moths for 2013. All taken this morning in a very wet trap after continual overnight rain.
