No Quarter - Page and Plant

A couple of addition to the 
Moth Year List 
 overnight included
 the very delicate and tiny
 ROSY FOOTMAN
BEAUTIFUL HOOK-TIP
at long last
 a discernible image of
 SHOULDER-STRIPED WAINSCOT
 and what would happily be described by us 'mere mortals' as a
 MARBLED MINOR
This however would not suffice for the authorities as the only way
of being certain it is not an example of a closely related Insect
is by 'genital examination', a painstaking exercise well outside of my own sphere.
We often talk of, and report from 'behind' the ECO RECYCLING WORKS which is an integral part of Dampney Ltd and about the most undisturbed section of our whole Recording Area! Here, among many others, Little Ringed Plover, Lapwing, Swallow, House Martin, Sand Martin, Stonechat breed annually, while it is also a stopping off point for migrant birds such as Whimbrel, Cuckoo and Whinchat to name but a few.
 THE MAIN PROCESSING PLANT
 Some of the Heavy Plant, Stock Piles of Hard Core
 plus Sand and Gravel as part of the virtually untouched Rubble Strewn Area.
 The wettest part of this area
 holds water at most, if not all, times of year
 but in the Winter it usually become flooded
 and of great benefit to visiting Wildfowl such as
Greylag, Canada and Egyptian Geese, Teal, Mallard,
Shoveler and even the occasional Mandarin Duck and a few

This is also a 'hot-spot' for both
Common and Jack Snipe.
 Recently a Soil Bund
 has been built around 2 of the sides
 in an effort to damp down the noise from the variety of machinery here.
