A Trickle

Despite the northerly winds, a few migrants have made it to the patch this week, 2 Willow Warblers were in the garden for a couple of days, a few Whimbrel have been heading south and a Common Sandpiper was on Moast Beach today.
On the moth front numbers have dropped dramatically with the northerlies, 300+ plus before and just 2 last night, although I did trap a Holly Tortrix (cheers Andy, for the I.D.) on the 7th.

Hi Steve. Your micro is Holly Tortrix (Rhopobota naevana) or something very similar, not lacunana.
