Sunday 5th June 2016

The weather seems finally to be relenting, and a very pleasant day was had today. Unfortunately this also means that very little is about to report on, but here goes any way. Grey Heron and 9 Swallow south, Jackdaw and Stock Dove north, Hobby through, (the first for some time). Also on site, the 2 long staying Chiffchaffs and a Lesser Whitethroat, that have been keeping a low profile till the weather improved. Late afternoon a Turtle Dove turned up.

An array of moths overnight in the improved weather was topped by this Varied Coronet, a species rarely seen at Landguard. Also we are still getting very big numbers of Diamond backed moths that have recently migrated from the Continent.

Ringing: 1 Robin, 1 Turtle Dove
