In That Quiet Earth - Genesis

Only having reported the lack of a new country during the month of September a couple of days ago, one duly turns up in the shape of MYANMAR (formally Burma). We of course extend a warm welcome to the readership in the hope that the Blog Link will be spread throughout the land!
A beautiful start to the day with some mist lingering over the River Stour and
the early morning sun livening up the Parley Pond after the last few showery days. Still no sign of the Mandarins though but a few Swallows were heading south, Wood Pigeons seemingly increasing in numbers and Pied Wagtails everywhere.
There were 2 dozen Moths caught overnight including what is believed to be 3 new species for the farm. BLACK RUSTIC,
 All Blair's Shoulder-knot.
Otherwise a very quiet day of duties on the farm rather than 'wildlife spotting' so hope the weather holds to get a little further afield tomorrow.
