A single mist net erected across the small wetland area continues to provide extraordinary numbers of Sedge Warbler with over 60 individuals now identified including a control with ring sequence Y470*** .
The trap held 529 moths of 88 species but only Narrow-winged Pug was new for the year although a Buff form Poplar Hawkmoth was interesting.
