Black-necked Grebe

Lade - 0600hrs - warm, dry and sunny, sw 4 - A breezy night kept moth numbers down in the garden trap with Least Yellow Underwing new for the year and another Shaded Broad-bar the highlights. There was also an influx of Garden Tigers and Knot Grass for some unexplained reason.

ARC - Called in Hanson hide where the usual suspects and the Monday club were already grilling the waders scattered across the shingle ridges. Still four each of Wood Sandpipers, Dunlins and LRPs, plus singles of Redshank and Snipe amongst a couple of hundred Lapwings. A Black-necked Grebe in partial breeding plumage was new for the autumn and several parties of Sand Martins passed overhead.
