A slight south easterly breeze again this morning leading to the hope of something good but instead its been a rather quiet morning.

A Chiffchaff and Lesser Whitethroat were the only migrants in the bushes this morning, with many of the local summer breeders having paired off and gone largely silent. Vis-mig included a scattering of Goldfinches, 2 Swallows, 2 Barnacle Geese and a Yellow Wagtail.

There were still 3 Wheatears by the Tanks Blocks and 2 Sandwich Terns passed offshore.

The moth traps were a little better. The Chinese Character is a common moth but one of the better looking 'Bird Poo' mimics.

Ringing: 1 Lesser Whitethroat
