Ni Moth

Lade - 0530hrs - wet and windy all day, ssw5 - The heavy overnight rain continued apace throughout most of the day. Despite this the moth trap was busy, including a new species for the garden, a migrant Ni Moth, alongside several Silver Ys.
Dungeness  - 1100hrs A half hour seawatch from the hide yielded a few Gannets and Fulmars, while the Joker and Marshman scored with a Sooty Shearwater, (briefly on the sea) from the comfort of the concrete road car park. Got a right soaking en-route to Hanson hide where the Cockney Kid was holding court. The adult Little Stint eventually showed along with 10 Dunlins, LRPs, Common, Green and Wood Sands and a Greenshank. Yesterdays Ruff had moved to the southern end along with the Goosander and the GWEgret was reported from Dengemarsh.

Ni Moth - A scarce migrant and new for the Plovers trap. Silver Y - A common migrant around the traps.
