Wakeham

The moth trap went out last night and I had 12 moths of 11 species, plus a Caddis Fly. I'm not 100% sure I have ID'd the moths correctly. But this is my effort apart from B# which I'm not sure of.

If correct, I have 4 new moths for my Portland Moth List, bringing my total to 170. However that may be less. I will check!

East Weares

A quick look over the Weares to see what was about. There were several House Martins feeding along the cliffs and a Kestrel on the Borstal Fence eyeing up a potential prey.
