27th June

A day that began with mist and light showers and quickly became worse with heavy, frequently torrential, rain from 0900hrs till dark. A Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch and three Black Redstarts were seen around the power station.

A Badger made its nocturnal visit to the garden arriving just after midnight.

The moth traps continue to disappoint with a pathetic total of just 25 "macro" moths from the two traps.
