5th Apr

Another very small arrival of Chiffchaffs, Willow Warblers and Blackcaps and also a Firecrest and 16 Redwings. A few birds passing overhead included four Siskins.
Three Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore and a Common Tern was feeding at the Patch.

In the flat calm conditions this evening at least 11 Porpoises were feeding close inshore. A Brown Hare was seen in the Desert.

The number of moths coming to the trap remain very low but did include a Dark Sword-grass whilst butterflies included a couple of scarcer species for us in the form of a Brimstone and an Orange-tip. After further checking it appears that our last record of Orange-tip was in 1999!
