Yesterdays Fieldfare was still present in the trapping area this morning and managed to find its way into one of the nets. A Grey Wagtail flew over but there was very little else to report.

A bat-catching session at the Long Pits last night produced two Nathusius's Pipistrelles whilst a Grey Seal, a Stoat and a Brown Hare were seen during the day.

The warm weather encouraged some dragonflies to appear with another Variable Damselfly, 130 Four-spotted Chasers and the first three Black-tailed Skimmers Orthetrum cancellatum of the year of note.

A few Painted Ladies were seen and Diamond-back Moths remain abundant during the day.

A couple of Red-eared Terrapins were seen basking at the Long Pits again.
