House Martins!

I have noticed that there were, as yet not that many House Martins in at the moment around our recording area.  However, today 57 were feeding over Toad Holes beck and gradually moving west, which is a good count.

Been a bit late this year with the moth trap as last night was the first time I have used it this year.  So I must admit I was a bit excited this morning to see if anything had been caught.  The trap revealed 3 species the Small Square-Spot, Flame Shoulder and Shuttle-shaped Dart.
