Lade - 0600hrs - warm, dry, muggy, sunny, hot later, 26C - The two Plovers traps were chocker this morning with over 150 moths of 31 species. Nothing particularly rare but the first Swallow-tailed Moth of the season. Figure of Eighty hit the traps in good numbers as did hawk-moths, White-points and the dreaded Browntails. The DBO trap hit the jackpot with the 4th British record of Dusky Marbled Brown.
Returning waders over the pits included Greenshank and Whimbrel.
