Saturday 13th June 2015


Rain for much of the day saw little in the way of bird activity, but the moth catch improved with highlights including 3 Diamond-backs, a Shoulder-striped Wainscot and a Pine Hawk Moth. At Walsey Hills a female Red-backed Shrike was on Snipe's Marsh, while 2 Med Gulls and a Cuckoo were also of note.
