Burghley House

OK, so the deer are captive but also rather cool. The Goosander however is one of 6 wild birds on the lake: 4 males like this one and a couple of females.

Acleris hastiana and a garden first

It's not only Winter Moths in the winter. This attractive little micro came to a window on Boxing Day. Only the second record for the garden.

Acleris hastiana

In other news my local recorder has finished microscopic identification of the few moths taken throughout the year. There are a few oddities to sort out but this one at least was a garden first.
