ARC - Passage Waders

ARC - cool, sunny start, cloudy later, nw2 - Dipped in a few times today as passage waders came and went. Best of all was a flock of 13 Blackwits from Hanson in the morning, followed by 6 Green Sands and 2 Greenshanks in front of Screen this afternoon. Three well grown juvenile LRP`s were probably from elsewhere, as I`ve not noticed any of our birds with chicks this year so far (too many gulls and crows etc); also of note, a drake Wigeon. The GWE remained at Dengemarsh and the Bittern was seen flying around.
On the moth front, Dun-bar was new for the year at Plovers, while Boulderwall had another brace of rare migrants in the shape of Splendid Brocade and Small Marbled.
