Wednesday 22nd June 2016

Another relatively quiet day, highlights bird wise included a reeling Grasshopper Warbler just east of the harbour creek at Thornham, a Mediterranean Gull along the Broadwater and a pair of young Stonechats along the east bank of the reserve. The moth trap produced a catch of thirty one species which included two Red-necked Footman, Campion and Burnished Brass.

 Not particularly uncommon but rather smart, Pearl Grass-veneer Catoptria pinella from today's moth trap - Holme Bird Observatory, June 2016
