Thursday 14th June 2018

A very blustery day with an adult Med Gull, a Little Tern fishing over the Broadwater, and a Cuckoo in the car park the only highlights of the day.

An Elephant Hawk moth, and a notable hatching of 23 Middle-barred Minors were among the moth catch. Brown Argus and Small Heath butterflies were flying in the afternoon.
