Sadly another cold and cloudy day in Norfolk. Very quiet for birds, moths, butterflies and people!! The cloud did push down lots of low flying Swifts which was nice plus two Great White Egrets were seen.
35 moths of 19 species in the traps today including a Pine Beauty, Vines Rustic, Fern and Small Waved Umber.
