Friday 9th June 2017

The first Meadow Brown this year on Landguard.
A calmer start to the earlier part of the day today but the wind did pick up again by mid morning. Offshore up to 9 Common Tern gathered off the point leading into high tide and 4 Cormorant moved South. On the reserve 1 Reed warbler was heard singing, the first fledgling Whitethroats of this year were seen in the Butts pond area. Passage over the reserve going South, 4 Swift, 3 House Martin, 2 Siskin and 1 Skylark.

Occasionally the odd ladybird comes to the moth traps, apart from the Harlequin. This Orange Ladybird is about to fly off as attempts to photograph it took place.

3 birds ringed: 1 Reed Warbler, 1 Linnet, 1 Blue Tit.
