After recent brilliant reports of multiple Emperor Moth sightings I planned to go to Whiteholm Drain to see some for myself. Preparing to set off about 2pm the clouds thickened but I thought this was just a passing band of cloud. I arrived at the parking spot and had lost my shadow but it was still reasonable. Saw my first Swallow of the year on the reservoir but by now things were looking grim. Started to rain and wind got up too. In my sodden fleece, desparingly I trudged back.
I will return however!
It is now 6pm, glorious sunshine !
