Mark's first ringing effort this year produced relatively few birds
This juvenile Blackbird ( a female) was plenty noisy
While this Willow warbler was content to sit quietly and be ringed
In the moth trap this last 2 morning there were plenty of moths, yesterday 166 of 24 species, today 148 of 22

Now here's a little wonder, this chap is a migrant, a Pale Mottled Willow, imagine - so small and a cross-channel flier, amazing
Looks like the Large Yellow Underwings are having a party!
A superb delicate little moth, a Light Emerald
