Thankyou to everyone who came to see Peter Clarke's memorial plaque unveiled this morning.

A beautiful sunny day with 2 Great White Egrets flying east and a Spoonbill feeding around the Broadwater. Also of interest were a single Stonechat, a Turtle Dove, a Whimbrel, a Med Gull and a Greenshank.

Moths included a Privet Hawk, 4 Rosy Footman, a Barred Yellow, a Shore Wainscot, 2 Rosy Waves, and another Lappet hatched from the obs cocoons.

Please note that the moth trap will be emptied at 2pm at Eastgate Cottage in Holme tomorrow.
