Friday 10th March 2017
Nice new boardwalk across the shingle on the nature reserve should concentrate the footfall and protect some of the shingle flora in this area. Very few migrants on site this morning with just a single Redwing on site although 66 Starling are worth a mention as they loiter on the coast before migrating out east. Offshore movements almost non-existent although a Bonxie put in an appearance late morning.
Shoulder Stripe up until the last few years had only been noted once but is now possibly trying to gain a hold ? It is apparently an abundant moth in Suffolk and lives on Dog Rose, of which there is not a vast amount here, so it is unlikely to become common at Landguard.
4 birds ringed: 1 Wren, 1 Great Tit, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Dunnock.
