Ringed Plovers and March Moths

Barred Tooth-striped, Trichopteryx polycommata
Yesterday I was asked by a friend if I had seen any Ringed Plovers on the beach so I went in search of them. Fortunately a pair moved on the pebbles, which was the only way I could spot them.
 In the evening I joined Neil and Jonathan for the survey of Barred Tooth-striped moths at Mill Hill. I was pleased to find two new moths for my galleries - the March Moth (Alsophila aescularia) and the Dotted Border (Agriopis marginaria).
