20th March 2014

Things are picking up. 20 moths last night including 2 March Moths, 3 Small Quakers, an Oak Beauty and a Grey Shoulder-knot. A Chiffchaff continues to sing around the Walled Garden area. Also of note was a flock of 100 Golden Plover that flew over campus at 5pm last night.

Located the same Golden Plover flock at lunchtime as they flew over Lymes Road - looked superb with their golden upperparts and black bellies. Getting ready to head back north. Coincidently I also found a Grey Shoulder-knot sitting on a Ash tree along Keele Road. Not often you find moths on trunks these days.
