Waders on the move included 2 Bar-tailed Godwit,49 Knot,3 Curlew and 2 Grey Plover also going south. Passerine movements in off the sea or overhead included 27 Meadow Pipit , 1 Woodlark, 3 Linnet, 1 Rook and 1 Siskin.
Moths included an Oak Beauty, and other insects included our first Lesnes Earwig of the year.
