A Willow Warbler was newly arrived – but which way was it heading?.
Wildfowl and Waders
Waders included 50 Knot, 7 Dunlin and 3 Sanderling.
An Osprey flew in off the sea at 1030, caught a fish along the eastern shore and then settled down on the sands to feast on its catch.
A Strawberry Tortrix would appear to be new for the island while recent new additions for the year include Ghost Moth, Nutmeg, Shore Wainscot, Smoky Wainscot and Dark Sword Grass.
