31/10/22 Crimson Speckled

A full circuit of the patch today in light South easterly wind was a slight disappointment, the avain highlights being a Ring ouzel at each end (one at Langdon and the other on light house down) c10 Swallows and 4 Firecrest.

Whilst walking back across the farm I picked up a Crimson speckled moth flying in front of me. Only the second ive ever seen and glad to ‘geg in’ on the influx. Shame it wasn’t a Pallid swift.

A quick walk up and down the sea front and marina before dusk produced a Humming bird hawkmoth, 64 Med Gulls and 2 1st winter Yellow Legged gulls
