10th Oct

A much quieter day, both on the land and at sea. The highlight of the day was a party of three Ring Ouzels at the north end of the Desert. Two Grey Wagtails, three Rock Pipits and 40 Siskins flew over.

The moth traps continue to produce plenty of interest with three Palpita vitrealis, nine Box-tree Moths, three Vestals, 56 Delicates and another Radford's Flame Shoulder.

The Pallid Harrier was seen again at Dengemarsh or at Lydd Airport.
