Gypsy Moth

 Lade - warm, dry, sunny, light airs - Another humid night that delivered good numbers of common moths in the garden trap, plus the first Box-tree Moth of summer, another battered Sussex Emerald and, new for the trap site, a male Gypsy Moth. On the bay this morning on the incoming tide a notable count of 260 Curlews and 40 Dunlins, followed by the monthly WeBS count on the lakes where Pochard topped out at 210 birds and Great Crested Grebe 28. This evening 15 Mediterranean Gulls and six Sandwich Terns on the sands amongst the usual gulls and waders.
