Svensson`s Copper Underwing

Lade - 0600hrs - mild, sunny, w2 - A mild, overcast night brought a few more moths to light than of late. Svensson`s Copper Underwing was new for the year and just along the coast a Sharp-angled Carpet was trapped by Saxman and is now in temporary residence at the Kerton Road Cafe.
Svensson`s Copper Underwing, Plovers - (and yes, I did check the underside of the hindwing)

                                          Reed Warbler and sleeping Foxes, Lade

Plenty of wildfowl and waders over the pits but not much quality. Migrants included, 10 Common and 5 Green Sandpipers, 10 Willow Warblers, 5 each of Reed and Sedge Warblers and 4 Whitethroats.
ARC - About 150 Goldies this morning along with a few LRPs, Dunlins and single Blackwit and Wood Sandpiper.  The Goosander remained, while the Gwegret was still on Dengemarsh.
