|Rose-coloured Starling Sturnus roseus Dungeness 28th May 2018|
The fourth Observatory record.
A Red-eared Terrapin was found dead on the road at the north end of the recording area.
Elsewhere today, most of the interest was in the moths trapped overnight. Dorothy Beck caught a Pretty Marbled and a Dew Moth at Lydd-on-sea and Barry Banson caught an example of the very rare pyralid Paracorsia repandalis and also a Flame Wainscot at Greatstone.

|Pretty Marbled Deltote deceptoria Lydd-on-sea 28th May 2018|
Only the third British record since 1986.
