NY2447 - Redstarts and Stoneflies!

I've been pretty busy since my last update and have to say, this pan-listing malarkey is great fun and very educational!
I know the chances of reaching the 1000 mark are slim, especially as I'm not prepared to dissect anything (So I'll certainly be coming up short with beetles); but there is still loads more out there for  us see!

The big bird highlight has been finding a singing male Redstart; a new record for my square and one I certainly wasn't expecting! Those of you following the Garden Moth Challenge will know that I have been running the moth trap in the garden......mostly in hope! It has been a very slow start to the season, but today I added a new record for my Garden List - Streamer! A simply stunning moth!

The warmer weather has brought out a few nice insects including this monster the Orange-striped Stonefly!
