Monday 17th April 2017

Another fairly quiet day with a Gannet and 7 Sandwich Terns offshore, 10 Swallows, 2 Lesser Whitethroats, 6 Sedge Warblers, a male Stonechat on the east bank, 6 Wheatears in the dunes and 4 Siskins over calling.

A Streamer, Hebrew Character, and Red Chestnut were in the moth traps while the first Green Hairstreaks were on the wing around the Observatory during the afternoon. A further 5 Emperor Moths emerged.
