Trying to get a handle on the current population of Tisbury's swifts is pretty tricky - accurately counting screaming parties going at anything up to 70mph is a challenge.

Go to Projects for a full account of the evening.
The pages now display photos of moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one's the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
This blog is updated usually every 2-4 days, depending of course on what's happening, as also other pages independently or linked from blogposts.
