Saturday 20th August 2016

A blustery day with occasional showers, some passage migrants were present with a Pied Flycatcher in the pines just behind the Observatory, and 3 Wheatears and a Whinchat along the sea wall to Thornham. Also of note were 4 Yellow Wagtails low over Gore Point early morning.

Moth numbers were affected by the high winds and only 7 species included Archer's Dart, Flame Shoulder, Flounced Rustic and Lesser Yellow Underwing.
