|Redstart Phoenicopterus phoenicopterus Dungeness 30th August 2016
A Common Pipistrelle was feeding around the Observatory again this evening.
The extensa Small Copper was seen again and a Holly Blue was in the Old Lighthouse garden.
The nights moth trapping was fairly slow although a visiting mother managed to catch a Rest Harrow, Delicate and a Bordered Straw of note and a Hummingbird Hawk-moth was seen during the day.
The nighttime cricket tour produced nine Sickle-bearing Bush Crickets and lots of Tree Crickets. On our return to the Observatory a Southern Oak Bush Cricket was found in the Observatory garden.
