Wednesday 29th June 2016

We are now in a bit of a lull as far as migration is concerned, but autumn wader passage is well underway, as this flight shot of a passing Curlew shows, one of 12 seen heading south today. Apart from those and the Serin again briefly, 1 Sanderling south along the beach was about as good as it got.
 On the insect front the moth traps were much quieter than yesterday, but Archers Darts are beginning to emerge as this fresh specimen shows.

5 birds ringed: 3 Linnet and 1 each of Wren and Chiffchaff.
