First moths and more additions

A mild run of weather so having requisitioned the electrics back from the Christmas lights I ran the actinic last night. Just one species, but there were two of them.

70 The Chestnut Conistra vaccinii

A few more birds kept the 1k list ticking up nicely and got lucky with a distinctive beetle under a log in the garden.

71 Stock Dove Columba oenas
72 Song Thrush Turdus philomelos
73 Blackcap Sylvia atricapilla
74 Bullfinch Pyrrhula pyrrhula
75 Compost Worm Eisenia veneta
76 Moorhen Gallinula chloropus
77 Rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus
78 Kestrel Falco tinnunculus
79 'Traveller's Joy' Clematis vitalba

80 Calathus melanocephalus

And at the moth trap this evening:
81 Common Earwig Forficula auricularia
