I wasn't able to make it to the Meadow over the weekend and there were no reports from anyone else so I thought that I'd better take a look today. Although it wasn't raining it was rather windy and the word "bleak" sprang to mind when surveying the swollen floods. These were almost birdless apart from the large contingent of black-headed gulls still with their guest MEDITERRANEAN GULL this evening. Apart from that it was just a few ducks, terns and swans about on the floods. There were one or two sand martins in amongst the hirundines this evening.
Still no bird photos in the gloomy conditions so here's another
moth from the garden which is turning up in quite good numbers
at present, it's a Dark Arches.
