Tuesday 14th June 2016

Unfortunately largely another wet and foggy day here at the Observatory. Birds were thin on the ground with most notable being a pair of Mediterranean Gulls and single Cuckoo and Turtle Dove. The moth traps were pleasingly productive with fifty five species recorded, most noteworthy being Red-necked Footman and Flame Wainscot.

 The rather aptly named Red-necked Footman - Holme Bird Obs, June 2016
