|My set-up yesterday - Bruce & Walker Mk IV on the left, a Duncan Kay on the right, both fitted with Mitchell 300's|
perched on a Kevin Maddocks rod-pod, complete with Gardner Tackle rod rests.
The moth trap was a little more interesting, this morning, with single Rush Veneer and Scarce Bordered Straw plus three Silver Y and my first Black Rustic of the autumn. Still quite a bit of activity around the garden, dominated by Chiffchaffs - up to a dozen, and three Blackcap which are feeding in the Elder and Buddleias, but also out in the maize. Vis mig has been rather ordinary; Meadow Pipit, Linnet and Goldfinches dominate, with the odd "alba" wagtail just to keep me on my toes. It's that time of year when I really don't know what to do next - birds, moths or fish?

the garden today.
