Montpelier Station!

This morning while waiting for a train I saw a Meadow Brown and a few Large White butterflies patrolling the disused platform while a Jay called raucously and a Dunnock was heard calling.

The moth trap produced the following this morning:
Silver Y 3+
Riband Wave 1
Poplar Grey 1
Marbled Beauty 3+
Willow Beauty 1
Lesser Yellow Underwing 2
Bright-line Brown-eye 1
Small Dusty Wave 1
A very worn and barely recognisable Bright-line Brown-eye

Small Dusty Wave over Montpelier

Lesser Yellow Underwing

Marbled Beauty

Poplar Grey

Willow Beauty

Non-moth stowaways in the trap included a Birch Shieldbug and a Harlequin Ladybird.
