Down at the Kerton Road Café two Scarce Chocolate-tips were trapped last night; Dungeness being just about the only place this moth is resident, although they may well have been migrants of course.
Oak Eggar - the females come to light early in the night while the darker males fly in the afternoon
ARC - From Hanson another decent showing of waders on the shingle ridges with two Wood Sandpipers the highlight, supported by four LRPs and Common Sandpipers, plus singles of Dunlin, Green Sandpiper and Redshank and 220 Lapwings. Marsh Harriers and a Sparrowhawk kept the waders and ducks on their toes while a pulse of 20 Sand Martins moved south.
More Common Sandpipers were recorded on Burrowes, and at the Midrips where also Wood and Curlew Sandpipers and Greenshank (OL, TH).
