Can I tick it though? Probably not....
Nobody's seen its legs yet!!
I had spent most of the morning getting drenched in the rain at Black Hole Marsh hoping to see the Wood Sandpiper that Steve had found there first thing. I eventually managed to see it in flight a couple of times, it was extremely flighty for a Woodsand, they're usually so 'bombproof'. Plenty of other nice waders on BHM to look at though. I also spent a couple of hours down there last night and took a few photos.
The 'very popular' new bank along the edge of Back Hole Marsh.
All for the greater good though, I'm sure :-)
DunlinA new plant for me at Coyford Common was this Orange Balsam.
And a couple of moths, the moth trap's only been in action once in the last week and there was only one new moth, this awe inspiring...
Lime Speck Pug.
I thought this next moth was new because I'd temporarily forgotten the one caught last year which was faded, battered and a bit dead, as can be seen here.
