Thursday 31st August 2017

An Osprey flew in off the sea just west of the NWT centre, while on the sea 5 Eiders, a Fulmar and a Great Crested Grebe were noted. Four Stonechats were in the dunes and 20 Black-tailed Godwits were on the NWT pools. A Cetti's Warbler was near the Observatory and ringing this morning produced 16 birds including 12 Meadow Pipits and 2 Swallows.

The moth traps were quiet with a Burnished Brass and Square-spot Rustic the highlights.
