2nd June

A day of seemingly very little movement came to life in the late morning when a Bee-eater, first seen on the RSPB Reserve, appeared over the Observatory and then spent 15 minutes or so flying around the Point before heading off in a northerly direction and out of sight. A Hobby was also seen in the Desert.

The moth trap produced a decent number of species and included this Beautiful Hook-tip Laspeyria flexula - only the second Observatory record. A Hummingbird Hawk-moth was also seen in the Observatory garden.

Later still in the day a pair of Black-winged Stilts were found at the Midrips Pools on the Lydd Ranges.
