Almost a summers day today with warm SE winds and bright sunshine most of the morning. A Red-breasted Goose early on was a surprise, though presumably this is an escaped bird. The Serin was again seen , along with another Cuckoo, Peregrine, 7 Common Tern and nearly 50 Curlew. In the ringing department a juvenile Lesser Whitethroat was presumably from the pair at the top end of the reserve, and a couple more Chaffinches from the local brood made an appearance. A few more new moths for the year in the warmer conditions including Dark Arches and Nutmeg. The first Summer Chafers also seem to have emerged overnight with one in the traps and one on the wing.
