13th June 2015

Weather: W turning WSW force 2, some mist

Following the first Hummingbird Hawk Moth yesterday afternoon, two were present today, again on the Valerian above Niffy bay.

Other insects included this Phyllobius pomaceus, the green nettle weevil, photographed by Allen Burton of the Friends of Hilbre.

Very little else to report apart from 5 Gannets and 6 Sandwich Terns on the sea, and the usual island birds were supplemented by a Skylark. The Rabbit still thrives on the island despite the obvious presence of a Red Fox.
