Rain and mist all day, so a few pics of rain drops in the garden. The only things of note today were 2 Black-tailed Godwits over the house at 6 am, and I did manage to see a Pilot Whale from the sitting room window - OK, it's a dead one washed up on Quendale Beach.

Migrant Moths

A few migrant Moths trapped this week - 3 Diamond Backs, a Dark Swordgrass, 5 Angle Shades and 19 Silver Ys.
