6th Aug

A calm, bright and very hot day and very quiet for birds with very small numbers of migrants in the bushes and 50 Sand Martins at the fishing boats this evening.

A Grey Seal was feeding offshore.

The highlight of a fairly small moth catch was a couple of Palpita vitrealis as well as two Rest Harrows and a Maiden's Blush. A Hummingbird Hawkmoth was seen ovipositing on Hedge Bedstraw along the power station fence.

Elsewhere, the Black-winged Stilt was still feeding at ARC. The insect highlight was a Monarch butterfly which made a brief visit to a garden at Lydd-on-sea.
