Friday 3rd June 2016

A very cool day, though the wind has eased a bit. It has been reassuring to see the Blue Tits above the Observatory still feeding their young, who can be heard from some distance away. Elsewhere the Short-eared Owl was present at the NWT entrance, Turtle Dove and Cuckoo were still present, and a Spotted Flycatcher was of note. The moth catch consisted of just 1 Muslin, 2 Vine's Rustic and a Cinnabar, together with 76 Diamond-backs!
