Going on holiday

Going on holiday in a little while so won't be blogging for a week.Did get to Broadwater this morning for a quick visit. Unfortunately the weather was against me. I did see 3 Starling, Green Woodpecker, Kestrel and Jay of note. The site apparently has had 88 different bird species to date, with Wheatear earlier in the year the 88th.I did also finally see the Stonechat again today, I believe they breed successfully. I saw 2 moths, 1 which I trapped but still couldn't get a decent picture. Dichrorampha vancouversana and Straw dot moth.
The only Damselfly was Blue-tailed. also finally got a decent photo of a buff-tailed Bee.
