Cup Final Day

Cool, cloudy, W3 - In past years something good normally turns up on Cup Final Day, but not today it seems. Had a scout around Lade early morning with only a party of 50 Swifts on the move of note. At Boulderwall, early afternoon, a hatch of insects (probably mayflies) had hundreds of Black-headed Gulls, Hobby, Swifts, Swallows, House and even a few Sand Martins above the lagoons snapping up an easy meal; even a couple of Crows gave it a go! Late migrants reported in the Visitor Centre today included Turtle Dove and Spotted Flycatcher.
Nothing much in the moth trap last night due to the cooler temperatures, but always a pleasure to see a few Angle Shades, one of my favourite moths.
