Waders and Moths

Lade - 0530hrs - warm, dry, sunny, light airs - A new moth for the Plovers trap last night in the shape of Small Rivulet; common enough, but just not made its way into our garden until now, while Oak Eggar was new for year (Pale-grass Eggar at the Kerton Road Cafe last night).
ARC - 0900hrs - Trio of sandpipers remained on the shingle ridges, plus 5 Dunlin and a Spotted Redshank that settled briefly before heading off south. From the causeway the Goosander was still in place and several large parties of Sand Martins were feeding high up on flying ants, along with Bhgulls.
