Friday 24th June 2016


It's always disturbing to find that some idiot has illegally accessed the site overnight and thrown a traffic cone into a moth trap which doesn't do it any favours at all. Both of the remaining traps held a Vestal which is a migrant noted here for only the first time ever last autumn. Bird wise 2 juvenile Peregrines were notable and we can only speculate as to where they might have come from. Other dispersing juvs included 2 Coal Tits.

Late news for yesterday include a substantial influx of Silver Y moths and the first Humming-bird Hawk-moths & Small Skipper of the year.

No birds ringed.
