25th Aug

A pretty quiet day with just a small scatter of commoner migrant species around the area. Of note were a Green Sandpiper, 30 Willow Warblers, a Spotted Flycatcher, a Redstart, five Tree Sparrows, 48 Yellow Wagtails, three Grey Wagtails and six Tree Pipits whilst Swallows trickled through for most of the day.
Good numbers of Sandwich Terns were feeding and moving east during the day and an Arctic Skua was also showing an interest in the terns this evening.

The mothtraps continue to provide a few goodies with a Rest Harrow, a Vestal and six Scarce Bordered Straws of particular note.
