Early signs of autumn…

Today I thought I would look for any other early signs of autumn as I am now starting to record autumn species of moths.

From the vis-mig point I noted the first returning (2) Meadow Pipits moving S following breeding at higher elevations. Goldfinch as normal here were on the move with a respectable 89S + 29N with 7 present. Two early Lesser Redpoll S was a surprise and 12 Swallows were on there way S.

A Red Admiral was feeding at Caldene fields.

However, the heather patch at the top of Raw Nook NR which is still full of feeding Bees and Hoverflies is still reminding me of summer!
