Quiet Weekend

Well hindsight is a wonderful thing, if we had left the Farne Islands trip to the weekend chances are the Bridled Tern would have gone but instead it frustrated us mid-week then not only stayed until the weekend but hung around for all visiting the Islands to connect with, not that I'm bitter! anyway you can't keep doing these expensive trips every 5 mins so I had a bit of low key weekend and just visited Blacktoft Sands this Saturday afternoon. Fairly quiet at the moment just the usual Marsh Harriers, five or six summer plumaged Spotted Redshanks, a few juv Bearded Reedlings flitting about the reeds, the Bitterns had been flying around that morning but not in the afternoon but the main point of interest was the Moths they had trapped the night before, two or three new ones for me including Poplar Hawkmoth.
