Remarkable Moth catch

Yesterday evening looked promising-not too cold or windy and a bit overcast, so I put the Country Park moth trap out for the first time for a week or so.

More positively, a nice Tree Bumblebee yesterday on the Rosa Rugosa border at Norman Court just E of White Rock theatre. And a high count of 20 Cormorants on the end of the pier.
