Not many birds...but a few moths

Its been fairly quiet on the bird front with one year tick in the past couple of days - a common sandpiper at 100 acre field.
Moths however were far better on Thursday night, putting my total for the year at 65, an extra 30 (ish) welcome year ticks. including 2 new for me- The fern and Mother Shipton, named after the 15th century prophetess' face appearing on the wing, see pic. Also below is a Minator beetle, named for obvious reasons!
