16th Oct

A day of limited coverage but it was clear that after the early morning flurry of finches passing overhead there was very little else in the way of migrants. Three Firecrests were seen in the moat and a Dartford Warbler was seen again near the Railway Station.

Moth trapping produced a Scarce Bordered Straw and our fourth Palpita vitrealis of the year.

As we returned to the Observatory this evening a Badger was seen foraging around the front gardens.
