Migrant Moths despite the weather!

21st July 2010 – overcast then sunny spells
The falling tide early morning produced just small numbers of Gannet, Sandwich Tern and Razorbill.
Grounded Migrants
The Cuckoo remains and the early trickle of Willow Warbler continues with 3 birds logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Waders included a Black-tailed Godwit.
Despite the heavy overnight rain the moth trap held 348 of 51 species. Immigrants included 17 Dark Sword Grass and 13 Silver Y while Straw Underwing, Scalloped Oak and Plain Golden Y were all new for the year.
