Patch Migrants and Moth list reaches it 200th

What a fantastic weekend reading the pager, I was to busy to head anywhere to far (as no lifers found) but all these birds must mean something good on the patch?

I have neglected the patch recently using it to jog on rather than looking for birds. Yesterday I had a small window of opportunity between collect the moth trap from my dads (will give full list below) and getting ready for a BBQ in the afternoon with the in-laws. 

I still went for a jog but took a different route with my Bins, on route the best bird seen, a Wryneck it was in a hedgerow/field which I spooked with the car as I drove along. 

Other highlights were Pied Fly, Whinchat and Redstart all around Trimingham.

But earlier than this I had ran the Moth trap at Dads and had quiet a haul of moths.

172 Moths caught with 41 species in total of which 30 were Macro and 11 Micro, I had 5 new moths in total. Full details with pictures of the best (well the new ones) below.
