Thursday 22nd June 2017


Probably the warmest night in many years followed by a hot morning but with the wind swinging south-west some thunder & lightening has just passed over us. Migrant birds consisted off southbound 34 Swift, 2 Curlew & a Sand Martin.


Moth traps currently time consuming having up to 2,000 individuals of up to 120 species a night at the moment. Nephopterix angustella is described as "very local" on Spindle so this one could be an immigrant.

11 birds ringed: 5 Whitethroat, 2 House Sparrow, 2 Linnet, 1 Robin, 1 Greenfinch.
