Thursday 13th July 2017

A Hobby was seen hunting just south of the Broadwater giving some stunning views, and 3 Velvet Scoters were seen off Gore Point.

Moths were rather sparser today with night temperatures almost dipping below 10 degrees but 2 Peppered Moths, a Fern, a Garden Tiger, Early Thorn and Dusky Sallow were among those caught overnight.
