7th September 2012

Not many birds about at the moment but the sunshine at least brought out the butterflies today, nine species were recorded with 35 Small Tortoiseshells on show. Tortoiseshells seem to have made a good recovery this year despite it being a poor year generally for lepidoptera. A single Willow Warbler and a Wheatear were found on the island and a Great Crested Grebe on the sea, also 8 Bar-tailed Godwits were on the shore.
