March 28th 2011

First stop this morning was Brandon Marsh for the Spotted Crake at East Marsh,no sign since 1st light & with the hide soon becoming full & standing room only decided to head over to Draycote for the Black Redstart again no sign although it was reported on RBA & Birdguides as showing well (Funny that as it was thick fog at the time & with at least 6 of us in the area at the time,we certainly didn't see it or any other birders!!) Anyway decided to head over to Wappenbury woods with Bob Hazell & Richard Mays & joined up with Steve Valentine in the search for Light Orange Underwing (National Scarce B Moth) where we had at least 35 a new Moth species for me,Bob then disturbed another moth which turned out to be a Early Tooth-striped another new species for me,i ended the day back at Brandon just for a year tick of Willow Warbler.
