A very quiet August here near Halesworth. No migrants until the last week or so when things kicked off with a flurry of migrant hawker dragonflies and a couple of painted ladies in the garden, but no hummers or even Silver Ys. Nothing unexpected in the garden MV. Over the last week I’ve had 7 scarce bordered straws, a few rush veneer and dark sword-grass, and yesterday morning (27th) a small mottled willow.
Took the grandchildren down to Southwold beach yesterday and found a cypress pug sitting on the toilet-block window. Not sure how excited I should be about this but I thought I’d share it with you; over the years, toilet blocks (i.e. their lights!) seem to have figured large in my moth-hunting adventures.
