6th May 2010

A very light variable wind but backing easterly later with some drizzle early on grounded a trickle of migrants with two Willows and singles of Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, Linnet and Goldfinch were trapped and ringed.

A single Little Egret was feeding in the gutter, 2 Greylag Geese appeared, 2 Wigeon and 4 Eider completed a strange trio of wildfowl species.

Highlight of recent moth trapping was a Waved Umber (see below).
