A blog about the moth-trapping exploits in my backgarden along with any other interesting natural things I spot further abroad.

23rd Oct - White-rumped at last
For over a week now I've been sweating at the news of the White-rumped Sandpiper at Rutland Water, in association with American Wigeon and a host of nice waders, Rock AND Water Pipits. Today I finally got the free time to enjoy this cracking little bird (only my second ever WRS) and it's american compatriot. All this, and the pleasure of my little boy by my side too! What more could a guy ask for?

Modern technology is wonderful!!
