Lade - 0700hrs - cool, dry and sunny, sw3 - Reduced numbers in the trap last night due to the chilly wind, but still had 23 species with White-point, Silver Y and L-album on the migrant front, also Swallow-tailed, Dark Tussock, Buff-tip and a very pale Tawny Shears.
Very little of note on the pits apart from hundreds of eclipse wildfowl.
                                          Swallow-tailed Moth

                                          Tawny Shears, pale morph

                                         Bar-headed Goose, Burrowes

ARC - 1130hrs - A couple of hundred eclipse Pochards and Tufteds at the south end plus 2 Ringed and one Little Ringed Plovers, Oystercatcher and Lapwing. Spent a bit of time checking through the Swifts...
Burrowes - 1230hrs - A Whimbrel was the only noteworthy bird amongst the feral geese (including a Bar-headed), gulls and Cormorants, on an island in front of Makepeace hide.
