I don't know much about caddis flies as I've never knowingly seen one before and I thought they would never end up in my kitchen, but last night a Limnephilus lunatus turned up! Described in the books as being common and breeding in 'all kinds of water', I guess this one could have originated in a garden pond somewhere, but it is still a big surprise. Also a Common Marbled Carpet in the flat.

There were groups of Woodpigeons flying SW over Richmond Road this morning - about 20 or 30 involved. At the station a Sparrowhawk was soaring - the first I've seen locally for months, and 4 or 5 Goldfinches.
