Friday 8th July 2016


It's difficult to get additions to the site list these days so it's pleasing to get the first site record of Peach Twig Borer. It is a recognised pest species of fruit on the continent so farmers won't be happy if it manages to colonise. Very little to report in the migrant bird department with just 11 Goldfinch, 34 Swift & Curlew going past plus a Chiffchaff in the bushes and a Sparrowhawk over. Late news for yesterday is of 2 Knot on the beach in the evening.

Nil birds ringed.
