As we head towards September and an exciting time of the year for wildlife as new species migrate through the country I got to find 2 of my first ladies of the year(no offence to any females I have met up to now;))
Yesterday in the moth trap was this Old Lady Moth.
Unfortunately no sign of the Monty but other birds of prey were spotted, 3 marsh harriers, a sparrowhawk & a hobby all spooking the waders on the lagoon at the Singleton hide.
Waders at the reserve included 19 little egrets, 1 water rail, 2 garganey, green sandpiper, 4 greenshanks, 20+ snipe, 20+ black-tailed godwits,2 grey herons,a few spotted redshank and 1 dunlin.
Some of the little egrets and black-tailed godwits on the lagoon.
