6th November

Another absolute dead loss of a day with constant wind and rain or drizzle spoiling any opportunities for meaningful fieldwork. The only worthwhile reports were of Black Redstarts at the Bill (2) and Blacknor.

Although it remained extremely mild overnight conditions were very unhelpful for moth-trapping and the only immigrants making it into the Obs traps were 5 each of Rusty-dot Pearl and Silver Y, and singles of Rush Veneer, Gem and Delicate; a slightly out of season Double-striped Tabby Orthopygia glaucinalis was also likely to have been an immigrant.
