5th April - Bird Food

Any chance of birding early morning was lost in the stupidity of leaving some of the kids things behind at a party in Morpeth yesterday evening necessitating an early morning recovery ahead of football. To make matters worse Morpeth was closed off filled with lycra-clad beanpoles being sporty so i had to fight my way through barriers and taped off streets to get to the leisure centre.
The saving grace was a modest collection of moths in the mkIII trap overnight, nothing exciting and I suspect I may need to upgrade my bulb/electrics to get anywhere near the sort of catches I caught with the trap loaned by Tom Tams two years back. As ever happy to have id's corrected by more experienced.
