A Great White Egret was seen in flight over the grazing marshes, a Spoonbill was also of note and a Hobby gave excellent views. A Whimbrel, Black-tailed Godwit, Greenshank and Green Sandpiper were all seen, and a juvenile Cetti's Warbler was near the observatory building.

Thanks to all who attended our moth day; 87 species were recorded in the obs traps including Pinion-streaked Snout, Silky Wainscot, a Black Arches, Elephant Hawk Moth, Poplar Hawk Moth, Oak Eggar, Shore Wainscot, Garden Tiger, and Bordered Beauty.
