Tuesday 10th May 2016

As they say in the song "What a Difference a Day Makes", wet and misty was unfortunately the theme for the day. Birdwise both Grasshopper Warbler and two Turtle Doves were singing between showers; eight Black-tailed Godwits and a pair of Med Gulls were seen. The moth trap was surprisingly productive and included Swallow Prominent, Green Carpet and Purple Bar.
