Little Egret

15th August 2012 – overcast/heavy showers E5/7
Little was moving over the sea excepting for a few Gannet, Sandwich Tern and Common Scoter.
Grounded Migrants
A trickle of Willow Warbler was all that could be mustered.
Wildfowl and Waders
Shoveler decreased to two while Teal increase to nine and a Common Sandpiper was the best of the waders.
A Little Egret was logged.
A large catch was dominated by Large Yellow Underwing, Dark Arches and Smoky Wainscot with Square-spot Rustic new for the year. However, highlights were both Acleris forsskaleana and Acleris aspersana being added to the island list!
