Lade - Hot, dry and sunny, light airs - A couple of scorching hot days with the overnight temperature not falling much below 20 C, making it busy around the moth trap with a 38 species haul of macros including Cypress Pug and Shaded Broad-bar new for the year. On the local patch two Common Sandpipers on south lake.
Common Sandpipers, Lade. Glossy Ibis, ARC
Called it at ARC early afternoon where the roving Glossy Ibis reappeared yesterday and was viewable close to the island just past the Screen hide. There was also a decent set of waders including Ruff, Greenshank, Green and Common Sandpiper, plus a Black Tern, several Yellow Wagtails and a Water Rail on the same island as the ibis.
