Another baby Robin!

A recently-fledged Robin was in the park this morning - so evidence of a second or third brood for one lucky pair! A Blackcap was singing too and there were a couple of Woodpigeons and Collared Doves.

The moth trap produced 3 Silver Y, a Harlequin Ladybird, an Anania coronata micro-moth, an Uncertain/Rustic, a Common Footman, a Copper Underwing sp. and a Lesser Yellow Underwing. A small Crambid moth (I assume) also caught.

This evening a Blackbird sang very briefly - mid July is usually the cut-off time for Blackbird song in my experience.
