Breeding confirmed…

At Raw Nook NR today I found a small caterpillar in the heather.

Further researched revealed the caterpillar to be of a True Lover’s Knot moth. The moth is a moorland and heathland species. So it’s nice to have it breeding in our urban lowland heath habitat.

At the vis-mig point today it was nice to have the first Skylark of the autumn moving north. Meadow Pipits were also moving to the S and S/W but many were very high so a fairly low count was achieved. A Painted lady was also at Caldene fields where a dragonfly Sp flew passed me but sadly I couldn’t ID it…
