Well this is a bird I've waited a very long time to see in the Peterborough area. It was on a whim I ventured up to Broadway Cemetery for the first time in months and, although I knew there had been plenty of Pied Flies drop onto the east coast recently so the bird was vaguely on my mind, I really didn't expect this.
A very lucky find and a very elusive bird. Mike Weedon helped relocate it with his better hearing and better knowledge of the bird's quiet calls.
Not often I get a first for the garden these days. This is quite scarce in Hunts (VC31) according to Hunts Moths. Terrible photo as I didn't realise the significance when going through the trap so didn't keep it back.
Also only my second record of The Blackneck - that one flew off before I could get a photo. And lastly only the third garden record of Scarce Silver-lines - a large pretty green moth.
