Saturday 9th July 2016

On the move southwards 28 Swift, 2 Whimbrel, 2 Sand Martin, 1 Mediterranean Gull, Curlew, Ruff, Barwit & Yellow Wagtail. Ruff is a good one to get here as we only get a couple of records annually. Apart from that it's baby birds. Reed Warbler briefly early am.

In the moth department Catoptria pinella (top) that will have wandered down from a coniferous wood somewhere plus a Rosy Footman (above) that we don't see here that often.

Ringing: 19 birds ringed today which include 3 Ringed Plover, 3 Wren, 3 Common Whitethroat, 2 Goldfinch, 2 Greenfinch, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Dunnock, 1 Linnet. 1 Robin, 1 Chiffchaff and 1 Swallow.
