Where are all the moths?

The last two nights have produced very little in the way of moths in the over night trap. Yesterday’s catch was just two moths and today had only four. We did get a nice light brocade, which is a new species for the year.

The most interesting event of today was the finding of an injured green woodpecker on the lichen heath, it couldn’t seem to fly but could just hop extremely quickly! The bird was caught and taken to the local wildlife rescue centre, hopefully it will make a speedy recovery.

This bird is a female as it has a black moustachial stripe as opposed to red one for a male.

The Ivy south hide can now be accessed by two doors instead of one as the steps now have anti-slip mesh on them and a new hand rail has been put in place.
