Sunday 13th July 2014

After last nights thunderstorms had subsided, first light brought calm, humid and misty conditions. This however did not last long before the heavy rain showers moved in, continuing throughout the morning. Visibility was poor and as a consequence very little of note was recorded. Just 33 Sand Martin & 6 Swallow south along with 8 Sandwich Tern south and 2 Brent Geese heading out of the river then north.

Large numbers of moths were in the moth traps, especially micros( those very small, hard to identify species ) kept us entertained whilst sheltering from the rain. A fresh, unusual form of Heart and Dart was noteworthy.

Ringing: 2 Blackbird, 1 Great Tit, 1 Wood Pigeon.
