Another juvenile Great-spotted Woodpecker hanging around briefly this morning. With brief visitors including a Hobby, a handful of Swifts and Swallows and more Curlews heading South. Offshore were 3 Dunlin, a couple of Gannets and Little Terns and the odd Oyk. A Bedstraw Hawkmoth in the traps is an immigrant with the only other site records being many years ago. Late news from Sunday included 2 Ringlets on the Butts plus the first record of Large Skipper since 1995.
