Lounge Lizard - Ian Hunter / Mick Ronson

 We are neither Nigel Mansell or Lewis Hamilton so generally stick well within the bounds of the Highway Code, which was the case last evening. For no reason of logic it suddenly came to mind that we would check the time it takes for the round trip of flashing up the traps on the heath. It would have been 30 minutes 'on-the-nose' had it not been for the unusually high volume of traffic as we attempted to turn into the main gates, but had it not been so we would have missed the ghostly apparition of a

cutting our track from right to left across the main pond
before disappearing across the Golf Course.
A late, but always welcome addition to the Year List!
At first light there were no prizes for guessing where we were as in the first insyance a couple of
were plucked from the traps followed by similarly 'first for the year' c4 in number
While emphasising once again that "we don't do Micro Moths", who wouldn't break with tradition  when finding such a beauty as

Winter Sabbatical.
With still no signs of a Dartford Warbler and the Linnet's seeminly having abandoned ship
it was left to this overly obliging
to pad out the page while keeping the other eye on our
first signs of nesting with feather carrying

then  returning via the Moors river and a small pod of

to find firstly c2 juvenile
followed by a trio
and finally a full
Considered strange as for the first year ever we found no signs of successful breeding right across The Recording Area!
Finally, a little Food for Thought!
"What odds do you think Ladbrooks might have offered against us capturing such a clip"?
Through the Caravan Window!
