A huge moth catch today of 72 species included a Buff Footman, Beautiful Hooktip, Scorched Wing, Silky Wainscot, Kent Black Arches and 2 Rusty Dot Pearls.

Birding was fairly quiet but a Green Sandpiper and a Greenshank, together with at least 6 Whimbrel and 45 Black-tailed Godwits, were all of note.
