Whimbrel over Norwich and Friday Night Mothing

I was playing pitch and put at Mousehold yesterday when a Whimbrel flew over headed towards the City.

Friday night I ran the moth trap a brilliant night with 265 moths trapped. This was with 49 species of which 34 were Macro and 15 were Micro. 2 Brand new species and one new for the garden. The most impressive moth had to be the Large Yellow Underwing with 96 of them in the trap, they were crammed in everywhere.
