18th July

Two Willow Warblers in the bushes and two Crossbills and five Yellow Wagtails passing overhead were the only migrants of any note on the land today. The sea remains quiet with just one Mediterranean Gull of interest. 

The micro-moth Acleris permutana and a Mottled Beauty were the most significant of a decent catch of moths overnight. 

The Black-winged Stilt was still showing at ARC.
