Bish Life

Mothing has started to pick up as night-time temperatures have improved. Caught my first ever Lime Hawk on Wednesday night, plus my first Elephant Hawk of the year. Three other garden firsts: Magpie, Green Carpet and Silver Ground Carpet. Also, on a tip from a friend, had a look down a lane running out of the village and sure enough, found a perky Little Owl on a pollarded Ash staring at me mid afternoon - nice! My House Martin survey for the BTO was a disaster though as I didn't find a single nest! Had a slow cycle round Keble Park afterwards and found five nests, including the one that is being built on our house.
