A welcome return for Marbled Coronet, one of last years favourites. This record equals the earliest ever in Northumberland. Still plenty of Orthosia action too...


  1. Nice MC, Stewart. Think i`ll give netting a go tonight, seeing that it`s gonna be mild.

  2. Cheers Dean. It is milder here but still a nagging easterly blowing...
