Baby Herring Gull about to be entered for a beauty competition - or maybe not !

2 Bee-eater south then over the river into Essex at 1025 hrs is the biggest group recorded here (we have five previous records of singles). Other migrants are Reed Warbler & 5 Curlew south.

Eucosma metzneriana is yet another 1st site record on the busiest morning of the year so far which also included 744 Diamond-back Moth with probably the same number again in the bushes around the traps.

Ringing: 10 Linnet, 3 Blue Tit, 2 Dunnock, 2 Great Tit, 2 House Sparrow, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Reed Warbler, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Wood Pigeon, 1 Wren.
