It's been a rather excellent week at work for wildlife sightings. On Tuesday morning, I visited the moth trap which I had set-up the previous evening, and I was delighted to see an absolute monster on the wall. The moth in question was the rare Clifden Nonpareil, or Blue Underwing.

That evening, a colleague of mine, Tom Mabbett, then went and found a Wryneck along the driveway, and much to my relief, the bird was still present this morning. Add to this a local Little Owl and a couple of Whinchats, a Redstart and flyover Yellow Wagtails, I can hardly complain about where I work.
