A hint of some late migration this morning with a Garden Warbler in the trapping area, a Reed Warbler on the beach near the Patch hide and a Spotted Flycatcher in the Lighthouse Garden. The Patch was pretty quite although the white-winged gull was present and being reported under various guises.
A family party of Stoats were showing well along our access road during the morning.
Diamond-back Moths continue to dominate the moth scene with 426 recorded in one moth trap overnight and clouds of them present by day. One observer, (GH) reported a "snow storm" in the car headlights this evening. Three Painted Ladies and a few Silver Y's were also of note today.
