It is something of an indictment of the times when the bird of the day was probably a Turtle Dove seen in the trapping area this morning. Other birds seen on the land of interest included a Buzzard, three Swifts, two Pied Flycatchers, two Whinchats, two Tree Sparrows, a Grey Wagtail and three Tree Pipits.
There was a westerly trickle of birds at sea including 16 Bar-tailed Godwits, two Little Gulls, eight Mediterranean Gulls, 750 Sandwich Terns, two Little Terns, an excellent total of 26 Black Terns and six Arctic Skuas.

A Brown Hare was seen in the area. 

There were not many moths in the traps again but they did include the first Vestal of the year and another Scarce Bordered Straw
