Lade - warm, dry, sunny, e 2 - 0700hrs -Marbled Green was the only new for the year amongst 34 species of macros in the garden trap, although a late White Spot was of note. We then walked up the beach, noting 12 Ringed Plovers en-route, to the Kerton Road Café where the two traps were heaving with moths. It took a while but 45 species of macros were eventually recorded with one tricky pug awaiting the moth lord's deliberation. 20 Sussex Emeralds were logged, making it 193 so far this summer at the café trap site. Other goodies included Early Thorn, White Satin, July Highflyer, Kent Black Arches and Double Kidney.
The walk back across the Desert, via the gravel pits, was largely uneventful with just a solitary Common Sandpiper on the lake and several Yellow Wagtails over south.
