Sudmeadow (27 September, contributed by Gordon Avery)

A Barn Owl seen in the osier bed on an early morning visit.

Standish (25 September, contributed by Juliet Bailey)

A Clouded Yellow seen today – this is the first report of this species for some time; are there any others still about?

Port Ham (19 September, contributed by Andy Jayne)

At Port Ham, in the evening there were: a Little Egret, one Greenshank, two Green Sandpipers, five Whinchats and at least two Stonechats.

Cheltenham (mid-September, contributed by Robert Homan)

Members running moth traps have had much to record in the past few days as the arrival of migrant species continues including the two shown here from Cheltenham.

The Vestal (top) and Hummingbird Hawk-moth (above). It is perhaps hard to believe that the delicate insect (top) is a migrant species. The shot of the hawk moth was a piece of luck, usually this species is just a blur as it hovers, feeding from a flower. (R. Homan)
