Well 3 Moth species in my garden is a Moth Fest to me!
A delightful new addition to my garden moth list was an Angle Shades Moth. It had been resting on a plant pot in daylight until early evening when it took flight.
A walk around the Fisheries early on Saturday morning did not yield much in the way of bird species, however a female Blackcap, Nuthatch and 6 Mistle Thrush were pleasing to see. A couple of Speckled Wood butterflies along with hoards of Crane flies were the only other notable sightings on what was a bright sunny morning.
During the day in my garden a Small Tortoiseshell paid regular visits to the Buddleia flowers and in the evening another new addition to my moth list was a Yellow-barred Brindle moth that had sought refuge in my house.

These shots were taken through the fence at the cafe seating eating area where there is plenty of vegetation for the Birds and Bees to make good use of.
Silver Y moths were the evenings entertainment. I watched 3 individuals at times as they flew amongst the planted flower pots. The Lantana flowers seemed to be the favoured flower.
