Not quite so hot today with an onshore breeze. Bird wise a handful of waders moved through & a Little Egret went north. Odd Sanderling have been on the beach in recent days as they head down from the arctic heading for West Africa. No passerines appear to have started moving just yet. Insect wise the moth traps were less hectic this morning (but still busy) with plenty of butterflies on the reserve. Migrant Hawker dragonflies have started to appear in recent days & worth a mention is the first Porpoise for a while.

6 birds ringed: 4 greenfinch, 1 wren, 1 great tit.
