Ongoing Excavation Works.

There was another drop of migrants this morning with 50 Willow Warblers and a Grasshopper Warbler of note. Overhead 200 Swifts, 30 Sand Martins and six Yellow Wagtail passed through. 
There was an emergence of flying ants this evening with an attendant flock of gulls which included two juvenile Mediterranean Gulls.

What were actually fairly empty moth traps did produce one notable moth in the form of a Golden Twin-spot - only the sixth Observatory record.
