Saw 2 new moths for my list today at The Wardens Office. The 1st was a Four Dotted Footmen. Had a bit of luck with this moth. It flew off the wall and landed on the Car Park….

The 2nd was a Common Wainscot. Its a shame it was really high up. But I got enough off the photo for an identification…

Like the Air Balloons a week ago, I know this is not Wildlife. But it does give you a feel of what you can see flying over the nearby Halfpenny Green Airport. This guy at times really flew low over the Common. Amazed me how fast and powerful it was. I will try to find out what type of plane it is….
