Myself and John were back Ringing at Whitburn this morning after a couple of weeks doing different things. It was good to be home!!! Apart from a re-trapped Blackbird and a new Goldfinch they were all Warblers in the net today. Obviously getting ready for the long trip back to Africa. Seeing as we were back at Whitburn I was able to see what moths had been trapped overnight. Not a huge total but still seven new species for me; Dun-Bar, Orange Swift, Marbled Beauty, Lemke's Gold Spot, Straw Underwing, Coxcomb Prominant and a gorgeous Ruby Tiger Moth (below).
