Not as windy ....

Although the wind increased through out our visit gusting up to 30 mph it did not produce the hoped for goody. No sign of yesterday's Turnstone, just 8 Ringed Plover and 3 Dunlin present. Still plenty of hirundine with an increase in House Martin numbers probably up to 1500+ while 300 Sand Martin were similar to yesterday's number but very few Swallows around. At least 4 Raven, 2 Buzzard, Yellow Wagtail juv and Yellow-legged Gull adult also noted.

Despite the wind and overnight temperatures dropping to 7c there were 54 moths of 14 species with 7 Lunar Underwing and Brindled Green the best of the catch.
